Entry ID: FW00053

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: This file contains data from measurements and analyses of physical and chemical
characteristics of the water column. Among chemical parameters that may be
recorded are salinity, pH and concentration of oxygen, ammonia, nitrate,
phosphate, chlorophyll and suspended solids. Physical parameters that may be
recorded include temperature, density (sigma-t), transmissivity and current
velocity (east-west and north-south components). Cruise and station
information may include environmental conditions of the study site at the time
of observation. Data are very sparse prior to 1951. The files contain a total
of 633,884 records.
