Filter Pad absorption measurements of suspended particulate matter - data from the BROKE-West voyage of the Aurora Australis, 2006
Entry ID: BROKE-West_particulates


Summary
Abstract: Particulates in the water were concentrated onto 25mm glass fibre filters.

Light transmission and reflection through the filters was measured using a spectrophotometer to yield spectral absorption coefficients.

Data Acquisition:

Water samples were taken from Niskin bottles mounted on the CTD rosette. Two or three depths were selected at each station, using the CTD fluorometer profile to ... View entire text

Quality All data are usable. However, sampling was not ideal owing to a considerable delay between collection of water samples in the Niskin bottles and subsampling for optical measurements: sedimentation of the sample in the Niskin bottle and photoadaptation by the algae almost certainly occurred to varying extents at each station.

Water samples were taken from each CTD cast at between 1 and 3 depths per station.
