Summary
Abstract: The ctd MOCNESS-1 data were collected during the RHB0603 cruise in the Sargasso Sea from April 10 to April 30, 2006 and during the PS24_1 off the Atlantic coast of Africa from November 5 to November 21, 2007. The MOCNESS-1 has nine rectangular nets (1m x 1.4 m) which are opened and closed sequentially by commands through conducting cable from the surface (Wiebe et al., 1976). The underwater unit ...

Quality The particular MOCNESS system from which these CTD data came is one of three net systems. The MOCNESS-1 has nine rectangular nets (1m x 1.4 m) which are opened and closed sequentially by commands through conducting cable from the surface (Wiebe et al., 1976). In this system 'the underwater unit sends a data frame, comprised of temperature, depth, conductivity, net-frame angle, flow count, time, ... View entire text
