LTER Georgia Coastal Ecosystems - November 2001 bin-averaged CTD profiles for the Georgia Coastal Ecosystems Duplin River transect

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Two hydrographic surveys were performed on November 27-28, 2001, along an
south-to-north transect up the Duplin River on Sapelo Island, Georgia (Duplin
River Transect, GCE-DP). Vertical CTD profiles were collected at various
nominal stations along the transect during various tidal conditions.
Conductivity, temperature, pressure and optical backscatter were measured, and
depth, salinity and sigma-t were calculated for each profile. Data values
collected on the upcast were deleted, and the remaining data were averaged
within 0.5m depth bins and interpolated to produce a smooth profile for
contouring. This data set was collected as part of the Georgia Coastal
Ecosystems LTER quarterly hydrographic monitoring program.

Access Constraints
Data Access Policy
As a member of the Long Term Ecological Research Network, the Georgia
Coastal Ecosystems LTER Program is committed to providing access to data
collected under the auspices of our project in a timely fashion. Study
results will be published in the scientific literature, and documented
data sets and other information will be provided on the World Wide Web for
legitimate scientific and educational purposes.

Access to GCE resources varies by resource type and user affiliation, and
requires acceptance of the GCE LTER Data Use Agreement. Descriptions of
the basic data access categories used to classify each resource are as
follows:

Category Description Maximum waiting period
Type 1 Public resources, including most GCE metadata, data from published
studies, literature citations, and conference presentations. May also
include special reports or unpublished treatments of public data sources.
none
Type 2 Project resources, including data from GCE core monitoring
activities, presentations made at project meetings, and metadata
containing proprietary information. 1 year from the end of observations or
data analysis
Type 3 Proprietary resources, including data from individual directed
studies or student projects supported by GCE funds, and resources
contributed by GCE-affiliated research programs. 2 years from the end of
observations or data analysis
Type 4 Sensitive resources, including data sets subject to proprietary or
copyright restrictions, containing classified information, or containing
information that may compromise the protection of endangered species or
habitats. (Note: submission of type 4 data requires written justification
and prior approval by the GCE Project Administrator). Specified by
Contributor


Use Constraints
All publications based on this data set must cite the contributor and Georgia
Coastal Ecosystems LTER project, and two copies of the manuscript must be
submitted to the GCE-LTER Information Management Office.
