Abstract:
From aboard the R/V Ed Ricketts, UCLA performed CTD transects between August 22-24, 2000. The Seabird SeaCat Profiler SBE 19 (unpumped) housed conductivity, temperature, and pressure sensors.
Purpose: These data were collected for oceanographic research.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The Seabird CTD data were bin averaged to 1 meter depth intervals and physical values were calculated at the corresponding depths. This processing was done by the manufacturer's software (SeaSoft) using the default settings. Manuals for this software are available on the web. Bad data values have been replaced by -9.990e-29. These data should be removed prior to viewing.
