Dataset: RV Investigator Voyage IN2015_C02 CTD Data


This record describes the Conductivity-Temperature-Depth (CTD) data collected from the Marine National Facility RV Investigator Charter Voyage IN2015_C02 - Great Australian Bight (GAB) Deep water pelagic and benthic ecosystem study. The voyage is departing Port Lincoln on the 30th November, 2015 and arriving in Fremantle on the 22nd December, 2015.

Data for 34 deployments were acquired using the Seabird SBE911 CTD 20, fitted with 36 ten litre bottles on the rosette sampler. Sea-Bird-supplied calibration factors were used to compute the pressures and preliminary conductivity values. CSIRO supplied calibrations were applied to the temperature data. The data were subjected to automated QC to remove spikes and out-of-range values. Chelsea fluorometer and Tritech altimeter were also installed on the auxiliary A/D channels of the CTD.
These sensors are described in the processing report.

The collected data was subsequently processed and archived within the CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere (O&A) in Hobart. Additional information regarding this dataset may be contained in the Voyage Summary and the CTD Data Processing Report.
