Abstract:
A Seabird SBE-21 (SN 2960) Conductivity Temperature sensor was mounted on the R/V New Horizon. It accurately determines sea surface temperature and conductivity from underway vessels. The sensor suite also included a SeaTech Blue LED Fluorometer (F1011) and 20 cm SeaTech transmissometer (SN 1026). These data were used to study 3-dimensional physical, chemical and biological structure in upwelling ecosystems and temporal variability driven by short term wind events.
Purpose: These data were collected for oceanographic research.
