The MOOS Upper-Water-Column Science Experiment (MUSE)
Preliminary results for shipboard CTD profiling and bottle CTD data, temperature, salinity, sigma theta, conductivity, transmissivity, fluorescence, chlorophyll, phaeopigments, primary productivity, productivity index, nitrate, nitrite, phosphate, silicate, O2.
There were a total of 61 stations on which CTD casts were made.
Contours of parameters from the CTD samples. Data are extracted by depth (0, 5, 10, 20, 30, 40, 60, 80, 100, 150, 200m) and plotted using SURFER, where the data have been interpolated with the Kriging method. Data points are designated by black dots.
Please note the data points, as contours may have been interpolated beyond the points where data were collected.
Vertical profiles by depth for individual stations. There are 9 graphs per page. These graphs were produced using MatLab, except for the Primary Production graphs which were created in Sigma Plot. The primary production graphs are plotted by light level rather than depth.
Maps of all the stations, the chlorophyll stations, and the primary productivity stations. Unfortunately the cruise track was not a line or grid. As such stations are scatter far and wide and often stations overlap each other making it difficult to plot clearly. In such a case please use the station list.
