Physical parameters from O'Gorman Rocks area, Davis 2004/05
Entry ID: OGorman_sonde


Summary
Abstract: Data collected from O'Gorman rocks near Davis Station between February 2004 to January 2005. Data were collected using a Yellow Science Industries 6600 Sonde. Vertical profiles of Temperature, Salinity, Conductivity, Dissolved Oxygen, Photosynthetically Active Radiation were collected. Each Sampling date/time and depths were recorded.

The data are stored in spreadsheet form, and saved as a comma separated values text file.

This work was carried out as part of ASAC project 40.

The fields in this dataset are:

Quality Some problems with the PAR sensor were suspected. Dissolved oxygen readings were sometimes suspicious due to problems with the membrane. The last three data collections (18-Dec-2004, 12-Jan-2005, 29-Jan-2005) were collected by Summer tradesmen (not the technical contact), and the sonde may have been reset. The last three deployments should therefore be considered dubious.
