Quality "The primary fluorometer was mis-calibrated (had the wrong scale factor in the calibration/processing file), so fluorescence data from the first four (or five) stations (Stns #22, #7, #8, #11) had to be re-processed with the correct scaling factor. Examination of the *.cnv file showed which casts had the miscalibrated data, as the max reading for fluorescence was ~ 0.05 mg/m3. For nearly every other station, maximum fluorescence readings were > 1.0 mg/m3. A secondary fluorometer was added to the CTD rosette between Stns #11 and #12, which verified that the issue was with the scale factor in the CTD processing software." (from Cruise Report)

The data that are served have warnings about fluorescence numbers in the headers of the casts at Stations 22, 7, 8 and 11.
