Core CTD data - MDUC

Project Manager: Mike Burczynski
Lead Scientist: Dave Caress

CTD data from underway and profiler CTD systems and MBARI ROVs, have been designated as core data streams. Support for the maintenance, operation, calibration and configuration of the instruments, electronics, and related hardware, and support for the processing and archiving of the data is provided on an institutional basis rather than through individual projects or divisional budgets.

The project will continue to carry out activities described last year(2003).

New project elements for 2004:

  • New oxygen sensors will be integrated on ROV Ventana and ROV Tiburon. A replacement unit has been identified and tested. The Information Applications Group (IAG) and Software Engineering will support data path modifications.
  • IAG will review the core data streams and identify necessary changes to the systematic processing.
  • CPU upgrades will continue.
