Summary
Abstract: Southern Ocean 2001 and 2002 moorings: ice profiler data, depth and pressure vs. time, temp., salinity, density data (SLOW to LOAD) and current data (SLOW to LOAD)

"As part of the SO GLOBEC field program, the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) deployed an array of instrumented subsurface moorings near Marguerite Bay during March 2001- March 2002 and a second array during March 2002-March 2003 (Figure 1). The moored measurements included pressure, temperature, conductivity, velocity, acoustic backscatter, and ice thickness. To monitor surface forcing during the moored array observations, two automatic weather stations (AWSs) were deployed on islands in Marguerite Bay and time series of wind, air temperature, pressure, and relative humidity were collected from May 2001 through March 2003.

The primary goals of this effort were to measure the temporal and spatial variability of currents and physical and biological water properties in the study area on time scales from hours to seasonal, improve our description and understanding of the regional general circulation, and identify and describe those physical processes that make this region well suited for krill production and survival."

Quality
The raw data recorded in the WHOI Seabird and RDI instruments were downloaded onto PC's at sea and basic processing started during the cruises and completed at WHOI after post-cruise calibration data were obtained.


Use Constraints
Any person making substantial use of a data set must communicate with the investigators who acquired the data prior to publication and anticipate that the data collectors will be co-authors of published results. This extends to model results and to data organized for retrospective studies.

The data here are intended for scholarly use by the academic and scientific community, with the express understanding that any such use will properly acknowledge the originating investigator.
