SHEBA Upper Ocean CTD and Thermal Microstructure, Western Arctic Ocean
Entry ID: ARCSS151

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: This data set includes conductivity, temperature, and depth (CTD) measurements along with thermal microstructure data (such as, turbulent thermal variance, turbulent kinetic energy, and vertical temperature gradient) collected from 12 October 1997 to 30 September 1998. The storage, redistribution, and ultimate release of the energy contributed by incoming shortwave radiation has major effects on ... View entire text
