This dataset contains data collected on R/V Endeavor during cruises EN259, EN262, EN264, EN266, and EN267I in the North Atlantic Ocean from 1995-01-12 to 1995-06-04. These data include depth. The instruments used to collect these data include Photosynthetically Available Radiation Sensor and Radiometer. These data were collected by Jeff Van Keuren of Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution as part of the "U.S. GLOBEC Georges Bank (GB)" project and "U.S. GLOBal ocean ECosystems dynamics (U.S. GLOBEC)" program. The Biological and Chemical Oceanography Data Management Office (BCO-DMO) submitted these data to NCEI on 2019-11-28.

Dataset Description:
Photosynthetically Available Radiation

Most information regarding individual profiles is provided with the individual data files (location, correction to GMT, light units, sensor type and characteristics, date of latest calibration). Upcast and downcast profiles sorted separately by depth, then time. Downcast listed first. Raw values listed - no averaging. All profiles were taken with the same two (Biospherical Instruments, Inc. San Diego, CA) instruments: underwater unit (PUV-500) and matched deck unit (PUV-510). Last Calibration of Sensors: 15 DEC 95. The December 1995 recalibration results have been applied to all readings. The change in calibrations from the previous April 1993 factory measurements were less than 2%. All profiles were taken from same location on the R/V Endeavor: starboard side using the J-frame. Whenever sea condition allowed, the ship was turned such that the sun was shining on the starboard side and as close to amidship as possible.
