Abstract:
Sixty-six CTD casts were made using a profiling SeaBird 911-Plus CTD (SN 91636) aboard the R/V New Horizon. The sensor suite consisted of a SeaBird SBE 4 Conductivity, SBE 3 Temperature, and SBE 13 Oxygen sensors. Also, the suite included a Paroscientific Digiquartz high resolution pressure transducer with temperature compensation (SN 60963), a SeaTech FlashLamp Deep Chlorophyll Fluorometer, a SeaTech 25 cm, 660 nm Deep Transmissometer. It also had two light sensors from Biospherical,a Quantum Cosine Profiling Sensor QCP-200 (SN 7137) and a Log Quantum Scalar 4-pi Irradiance Sensor QSP-200L (SN 4252). Lastly, there was a Data Sonics PSA 900, a 5000 meter altimeter.
Purpose: These data were collected for oceanographic research.

Native_Data_Set_Environment:
*.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. *.BL - where bottles are tripped *.BTL - processed bottle data *.CON - contains information regarding the configuration of the CTD including the calibration constants for all sensors. A snapshot of this file is taken before each file of raw data is acquired. For each file of raw data (eg. CAST025.DAT) there exists a file with the same name that contains the configuration of the instrument package while that set of data was acquired (e.g., CAST025.CON). *.CNV - raw data converted into engineering units. CNV is the default extension used as output for all the SEASOFT modules. *.DAT - raw data in binary form *.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. *.ROS - raw data collected at same time bottles were tripped

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Please see CTD_processing.doc for processing details. For casts 08, 39, 43, 55, no bottles were tripped. Therefore, the *.btl or *.ros do not exist for these casts. For casts 11 and 52, a second data file for the second half of the cast can be found with a *.da2 extension. For casts 46-66, a new SeaTech Fluorometer was added.
