Physical and chemical profile data collected from CTD and XBT aboard the R/V Point Sur in the Pacific Ocean as part of the CalCOFI Line 67 in March 2012 (NCEI Accession 0098772)

Following in a long tradition of hydrographic studies of the California Current system, the data in this report were collected during the 27-30 March 2012 cruise of the Pacific Coast Ocean Observing System (PaCOOS) program aboard the R/V Point Sur. The PaCOOS program was organized in 2003/2004 as the NOAA west coast contribution to the national Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS), and is charged with "providing ocean information for the sustained use of the California Current Large Marine Ecosystem under a changing climate. PaCOOS cruises generally subsample the standard California Cooperative Oceanic Fisheries Investigations (CalCOFI) grid of hydrographic stations. This PaCOOS cruise did exactly that, sampling along CalCOFI line 67 from Moss Landing, California, to station 90 (CTD casts 1-19). To increase the resolution of the hydrographic data and to maintain the convention of similar recent PaCOOS cruises, eight CTD casts were also inserted between the standard CalCOFI sites along line 67. Participants on the cruise came from the Naval Postgraduate School (Physical Oceanography, Nutrient Analysis), the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (Nutrient Analysis, Primary Productivity), University of California at Santa Cruz (Zooplankton Analysis), and Moss Landing Marine Laboratories (Nutrient Analysis).
