Davis sea ice Nov. 2016
Entry ID: AAS_4291_2016_seaice

Abstract: This data describe a set of sea-ice and seawater physical and biochemical parameters obtained from seawater samples and ice cores drilled from land fast sea ice in the vicinity of Davis Station, East Antarctica at six different dates (stations 1-6) during late Spring 2016.
Stations 1: 16 Nov. 2016
Stations 2: 21 Nov. 2016
Stations 3: 23 Nov. 2016
Stations 4: 26 Nov. 2016
Stations 5: 29 Nov. 2016

Purpose: This time series is useful to access processes that drive the temporal variability in the Fe distribution in the sea ice and underlaying seawater.

CORING DEVICES Ancillary Description
Quality High outlier values of sFe and DFe for S5 was found at station 4 and 5 when compared to the neighboring sections and to all top and intermediate layer (S1-S4) values. We suspect that possible contamination could have occurred during the melting process of the S5 sections on these days.
