HLY-07-02 Profiles of photosynthetically active radiation (PAR)


Profiles of photosynthetically active radiation (PAR) profiles are presented from the HLY0702 cruise in May-June 2007 onboard the United States Coast Guard Cutter (USCGC) Healy. Discrete downwelling PAR irradiance profiles are presented from 96 sites measured with a PUV-510 instrument (Biospherical Instruments). PAR irradiance is in units of uE/cm2/sec and depths is in units of meters. Data are in Excel (.xls) and comma delimited (.csv) format. Data were collected during the Bering Sea Ecosystem Study-Bering Sea Integrated Ecosystem Research Program (BEST-BSIERP). BEST-BSIERP together are the Bering Sea project.
