Towed CTD data collected in conjunction with the BIOMAPER-II towed package, Oct and Dec 1997-1999, Georges Bank/Gulf of Maine region, GLOBECEntry ID: BMP2_ess_GB
Abstract: Integrated into the towed Bio-Optical Multi-frequency Acoustical and Physical
Environmental Recorder (BIOMAPER-II) vehicle is an enhanced CTD sensor package.
The data reported here are the high resolution observations of temperature,
salinity, light transmission, fluorescence and calculated values of potential
temperature and potential density ... recorded along the ship's track. The unit is
generally towed in an oscillating manner over a depth range of 0 to 200m.
Observations were made during five cruises to the Gulf of Maine/Georges
Bank region, Oct and Dec 1997-1999.
These data have not been post cruise corrected/calibrated and are to be
considered as semi-processed.
