SNACS: Environmental Variability, Bowhead Whale Distributions, and Inupiat Subsistence Whaling - oceanographic data

Summary

This data set contains underway temperature, conductivity, depth, and pigment measurements conducted during the Study of the Northern Alaska Coastal System (SNACS) cruise, August - September 2005 in the Chukchi and Beaufort Seas, off the coast of Barrow, Alaska. Each data set includes latitude/longitude position, decimal day, pressure (m), temperature (deg. C), conductivity (Siemens/m), salinity (psu), sigma-t, Beta660 values for backscatter, chlorophyll fluorescence (Engineering Units 1), and colored dissolved organic matter (CDOM) fluorescence (Engineering Units 2).
