Dataset Overview | National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI)

Water temperature, salinity, and other data collected from R.V.I. Nathaniel B. Palmer in Eastern Ross Sea, Amundsen Sea from 2010-02-05 to 2010-03-03 (NCEI Accession 0164566)

This dataset contains profiles of temperature, salinity, depth and pressure measured using equipment property of Texas A&M University. Temperature, salinity, and pressure were collected from Sea-Bird Electronics CTD casts. Temperature and depth were collected from XBT casts. CTD data were acquired and processed using Sea-Bird Seasave software, version 7.18c on a laptop computer running Windows XP Professional.

Supplemental Information
Submission Package ID: UDW1RW
Purpose The Orsi ANT-0839005 project will investigate what processes control the flow of warm Circumpolar Deep Water onto the Antarctic continental shelf in the eastern Ross Sea. This will occur using a moored time series deployed during the 09/10 ODEN cruise. Two moorings will be deployed to record current, temperature, salinity (conductivity) and pressure in the interior of the Sulzberger and Little America Troughs. High resolution conductivity/temperature/depth (CTD) measurements will be taken to characterize the summer regional water mass stratification and circulation and to describe the boundaries and spreading of water masses, infer their mixing histories and interactions with the sea- ice and continental ice. The moorings will be left out for one year and multiple options for retrieval have been discussed and will be decided upon once vessel schedules are agreed upon.
