Oxygen isotope levels derived from sea water samples, 1994-1997, Georges Bank region, GLOBEC
Entry ID: delta_O_18_GB

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: Water bottle sampling for oxygen isotope analyses were conducted
during 25 cruises to the Georges Bank/Gulf of Maine region 1994-1997.

The isotope ratio H2O18/H2O16 was measured, using a VG Prism II
mass-spectrometer and reported in delta_O18 notation. The data
presented are the averages of the replicates and their differences. If
the difference exceeded 0.066 the analysis was repeated. The average
standard deviation of the data is 0.033. Also reported are
environmental parameters of temperature, salinity, fluorescence, light
