Title: Two Scanfish surveys mapped the hydrographic properties of frontal systems on the South flank of Georges Bank, 1999, GLOBEC.
Description:
Abstract:
The Scanfish is a towed undulating vehicle carrying a SeaBird 911 plus CTD system augmented with optional sensor systems. This Scanfish package was towed, on two cruises, across frontal systems existing on the Southern flank of Georges Bank. Sections were repeated over a period of days. Each cruise mapped a slightly different site. The data have been processed following the procedures outlined by O'Malley, et al (1998) and subsequently averaged to 1 Hz values.
