Abstract:
A SeaBird Elctronics 911 Plus profiling CTD with dual conductivity and temperature sensors was used aboard the R/V Point Sur during MUSE. The profiling cage is also outfitted with a Beckman dissolved oxygen sensor, a Chelsea fluorometer (Aquatracka), a WetLabs transmissometer, and a Biospherical PAR sensor.
Purpose: These data were collected for oceanographic research.

Native_Data_Set_Environment:
The following files can be found in this directory: *.ASC - files of processed data which have been converted to ASCII have the extension ASC. CAST025.DAT will be converted to CAST025.CNV and finally into CAST025.ASC. *.BMP - screen grab of data, usually 4 sensors *.HDR - contains header data including NMEA latitude and longitude, column names, ranges of values for each column, processing steps already run and the parameters used for each step.
