Oceanic Meteorological Data Measured during the JGOFS North Atlantic Bloom Experiment (NABE)Entry ID: JGOFS_NABE_MET
Abstract: The Joint Global Ocean Flux Study (JGOFS) seeks to understand
the processes that control the transfer of carbon and other
biologically active elements in the ocean. In addition, JGOFS
hopes to improve global-scale predictions of the ocean's response to
human-induced climate change.
The North Atlantic Bloom Experiment (NABE) ... was a multidisciplinary,
multinational pilot study of JGOFS, studying the spring phytoplankton
bloom in the North Atlantic and its associated biogeochemical
processes. It took place from April until July, 1989, on two cruises
of the RV Atlantis II and one cruise of the RV Endeavor. The stations
in the North Atlantic were located from 18N to 72N and from 8W to 47W.
Shipboard meteorological measurements were made during the cruises.
Wind direction (in compass degrees), wind speed and air temperature
were sampled every 10 minutes, and humidity and solar radiation were
sampled every hour.
