CTD data from MOCNESS tows
Entry ID: ctd_mocness_LMG1110

Abstract: CTD data collected during the 1 meter2 MOCNESS tows to the Cape Shirreff area in the Antarctic.

These data represent the water column conditions at the time/depth each net was open along the towed track. In addition, a number of critical net tow parameters are reported with the CTD data stream; as such, the plankton data require these files for ancillary net tow conditions.
