Abstract:
A Seabird SBE19 Conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) sensor was deployed on a prototype moored vertical profiler (MVP). The profiler was designed to sit at the bottom of the mooring tether, located at about 60m depth, and ascend, sampliling a vertical profile every hour. This data set was measured during the MUSE experiment from MBARI's MVP mooring located inside Monterey Bay near Santa Cruz.
Purpose: These data were collected for oceanographic research.
