Description:
Abstract:
A bathyphotometer, the bioluminescence sensor developed by Jim Case's Lab and the Physics Electronics Shop (both at University of California-Santa Barbara), was deployed within the nighttime Odyssey IIb Autonomous Underwater Vehicle. This data set was collected during the MUSE experiment.
Purpose: These data were collected for oceanographic research.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Data were sampled and stored within the AUV's internal memory. Post-mission, the AUV was retrieved and all binary data downloaded. Data were translated into ASCII format. Missions are grouped according to the day of the year. Sample configuration files can be found within the Night/bin directory. Please peruse the README.txt for more information on configuration files.

Attribute_Domain_Values:
Enumerated_Domain:
Enumerated_Domain_Value: 99.99
Enumerated_Domain_Value_Definition: Missing data
Enumerated_Domain_Value_Definition_Source:
The photomultiplier will lower the high voltage (effectively the gain) if the values it is measuring gets too high. So this would invoke another calibration value. During the time the instrument is adjusting the voltage, it outputs 99.99.
