Dataset Overview | National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI)

Physical profile data from towed (undulating) CTD casts from the R/V POINT SUR on the continental shelf off Oregon and Washington in the Northeast Pacific Ocean in support of River Influences on Shelf Ecosystems (RISE) from 11 July 2004 to 11 June 2006 (NCEI Accession 0049910)

These CTD data were obtained during the NSF-sponsored RISE project during July 2004, June 2005, and May-June 2006, on the continental shelf off Oregon and Washington, USA, in the Northeast Pacific Ocean. The data were collected by towing a CTD attached to the towed Triaxus platform. The Triaxus was normally set to undulate between the ocean surface and a depth of 40 to 60m. Transects were obtained, ranging in length from a few km to over 60km.

Purpose The purpose of the data collection was to provide transects through the Columbia River plume to understand the distribution of water mass properties and configuration of isopycnal surfaces. The data were also used in an analysis of Thorpe overturning scales to quantify vertical mixing along the 50m isobath near the mouth of the Columbia River.
