Dataset Overview | National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI)

Biological, chemical and other data collected in the North Atlantic Ocean on the WEATHERBIRD II cruises UNKNOWN as part of the EDDIES project from 2004-06-24 to 2005-08-25 (NCEI Accession 0081718)

This dataset contains biological, chemical, laboratory analyses, and profile data collected on WEATHERBIRD II in the North Atlantic Ocean from 2004-06-24 to 2005-08-25. The instruments used to collect these data include Niskin Bottle. These data were collected by Nicholas Bates of Bermuda Biological Station for Research as part of the EDDIES project(s). The Biological and Chemical Oceanography Data Management Office (BCO-DMO) submitted these data to NODC on 2011-11-22.

The following is the text of the abstract provided by BCO-DMO:

Niskin bottle and CTD data; nutrients, oxygen, DIC, POC, PON collected from R/V Weatherbird II WB0409 WB0413 WB0506 WB0508 from the Sargasso Sea from June 23, 2004 to August 24, 2005 (EDDIES project).

PI: Nick Bates
of: Bermuda Biological Station for Research (BBSR)
dataset: Niskin bottle and CTD data; nutrients, oxygen, DIC, POC, PON
platform: R/V Weatherbird II

Methodology: see Chapter 3: CTD & Related Measurements in U.S. JGOFS BATS Method Manual Version 4 (1997). Bermuda Atlantic Time-Series Study April 1997. Anthony H. Knap, Anthony F. Michaels et al., 136 pp. (link to BATS Method Manual version 4 (http://ocb.whoi.edu/EDDIES/PI-NOTES/BATS_methods_TOC.html) local copy)

OCB DMO Note: Longitude changed to negative values indicating West; depth_n estimated, surface at 1 meter; Niskin_id (90409##nn) split into sta '##' and Nis bottle number 'nn'. HPLC from original datafile not included because newer HPLC pigment data are already in database; all data are from primary sensors; event number is taken from cruise event log, and DMO added bot numbers to support data integration

PI note: All bottle fires included; most include sampling data. Level of Detection (LOD) not imposed for nutrient data. Typical methodology suggests LOD's of ~ 0.03 umol/kg for NO3+NO2 and SRP. No sample, Missing or bad dataset to nd. Fluorometric analysis for chl_a and Phaeo using 500ml sample were performed by BIOS BBOP lab.

Analysis Note: files listing SiO4 data from the sample rerun: WB Silicate reruns (http://ocb.whoi.edu/EDDIES/PI-NOTES/nutrient_reruns/WB_nuts_final_Si_reruns.txt)

Caution: this dataset is considered final, but it is unknown whether the CTD data have had any post-cruise calibrations applied.
