North Pole Environmental Observatory Aerial CTD Survey
Entry ID: ARCSS088

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: This data set includes conductivity, temperature, depth (CTD), pressure, salinity, potential temperature, and density data, which were collected yearly, 2000 to 2006, in the Arctic Ocean as part of the North Pole Environmental Observatory. Investigators landed a helicopter or skiplane on the arctic sea ice and took measurements using a Seabird SBE-19 Seacat with a portable winch.They processed the ... View entire text
