This dataset contains biological data collected on RVIB Nathaniel B. Palmer during cruises NBP0103, NBP0104, NBP0202, and NBP0204 in the South Atlantic Ocean, South Pacific Ocean, and Southern Ocean from 2001-01-01 to 2002-12-31. These data include chlorophyll a, depth, and total phaeopigment. The instruments used to collect these data include Turner Designs Fluorometer -10-AU. These data were collected by Dr Maria Vernet of University of California-San Diego as part of the "U.S. GLOBEC Southern Ocean (SOGLOBEC)" 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 2023-01-23.

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

Chlorophyll data from bottles, buckets and ice

Dataset Description:
Chlorophyll a and Phaeo Pigments from Bottle Casts and Ice / Ice Cores

A short note on the "Southern Ocean Grid System": The grid is a Cartesian plane covering the sample region in which distances are easy to calculate. The grid system used for SOGLOBEC is a universal transverse mercator (UTM) projection with a certain base point and rotation. The base point was chosen in the far south and the rotation was chosen to create one axis along the peninsula, and the other offshore. The units of UTM are meters, but the points are chosen in km rounded to the nearest km. Negative numbers mean that samples were taken southwest of the y axis or southeast of the x axis. For more details see:

METHODS:
Chlorophylls were dissolved in 90% acetone and measured using a Turner Designs Digital 10-AU-05 Fluorometer. The instrument was calibrated using chlorophyll a standards from Sigma Chemicals as noted below.

Calibration Notes: NBP0103
Calibrated at start of cruise using Sigma Chemicals chl_a standard.
Calibration values used were as follows:

High Fd: 0.109 High tau: 1.970
Med Fd: 0.111 Med tau: 1.950
Low Fd: 0.109 Low tau: 2.215

Calibration Notes: NBP0104
Calibrated at start of cruise using Sigma Chemicals chl_a standard.
Calibration values used were as follows:

High Fd: 0.090 High tau: 1.982
Med Fd: 0.092 Med tau: 1.981
Low Fd: 0.100 Low tau: 2.215

Calibration Notes: NBP0202
Calibrated at start of cruise using Sigma Chemicals chl_a standard.
Calibration values used were as follows:

High Fd: 0.109 High tau: 1.954
Med Fd: 0.103 Med tau: 1.949
Low Fd: 0.100 Low tau: 1.954

Calibration Notes: NBP0204
Calibrated at start of cruise using Sigma Chemicals chl_a standard.
Calibration values used were as follows:

High Fd: 0.149 High tau: 1.887
Med Fd: 0.141 Med tau: 1.968
Low Fd: 0.149 Low tau: 1.938
