Title:Chemical and physical oceanographic profile data collected from CTD casts aboard the Arctic in the Gulf of Mexico from 2010-09-09 to 2010-09-14 in response to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill event (NODC Accession 0068955)
Abstract:Chemical and physical oceanographic profile data were collected aboard the Arctic in the Gulf of Mexico from 2010-09-09 to 2010-09-14 in response to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill event on April 20, 2010, by the Subsurface Monitoring Unit (SMU), which consists of multiple government and corporate agencies. These data include temperature, dissolved oxygen, sound velocity, hydrostatic pressure, conductivity, water density, salinity and CDOM fluorescence. The instruments used to collect these data were oxygen meter, CTD and fluorometer. These data have undergone quality assurance and control procedures to validate their scientific integrity at the National Coastal Data Development Center. (NODC Accession 0068955)
