Underway Seawater Sampling Aboard NOAA ship Oscar Dyson in 2008, Forage Distribution and Ocean Conditions (B62)


This data set contains measurements of oceanographic conditions from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) ship Oscar Dyson cruises in the Bering Sea during the 2008-2010 study period. These measurements include water temperature, salinity and chlorophyll fluorescence in water pumped from the bow seawater intake at 2.5-meter depth. The maps show temperature, salinity, nitrate concentration, chlorophyll-a concentration, and oxygen saturation along the ship track. Data were collected from February 2008 through September 2008.
