Seacat Data Profiles (B53)



This dataset contains SeaCAT data (salinity, temperature, depth) profiles that were taken at selected locations to provide basic oceanographic information over geographic area sampled. The unit was an Sea-Bird Electronics (SBE) 19 SeaCAT and provided real-time information at the time of cast. The unit was mounted above a series of bongo nets, in line between the terminus and the net. Recordings were made throughout the cast, but data from the upcast are the most appropriate.
