Title: Shelf-Edge Study (SES) of the Land Ocean Interaction Study (LOIS), Data Available from the British Oceanographic Data Centre (BODC)
Description:
Abstract:
The Shelf-Edge Study (SES) of the UK Natural Environment Research Council's (NERC) Land Ocean Interaction Study (LOIS) is devoted to interactions between the shelf seas and the open ocean. Research cruises for this component take place on the shelf seas off the west coast of Scotland and the North Atlantic continental slope as far west as Rockall. One objective is to examine the physical processes involved in the fluxes of dissolved and suspended constituents across the shelf edge with a special emphasis on organic carbon and nutrients. Data from these cruises are collated by the British Oceanographic Data Centre (BODC), quality controlled and processed where necessary. An on-line database is provided so that LOIS project scientists can access data of interest. [This summary was derived from the BODC web pages.]
