Submersible Data (Dive Waypoints) for Life on the Edge 2003: Exploring Deep Ocean Habitats - Office of Ocean Exploration

Data and information collected by the submersible Johnson Sea-Link II at waypoints along its track during two of the seventeen dives of the 2003 "Life on the Edge - Exploring Deep Ocean Habitats" expedition sponsored by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Office of Ocean Exploration, August 16 through August 27, 2003. Measurements and information include sub's position and depth; personnel assignments; dive, mission, target, and vehicle ID's; dive comments; hyperlinks to CTD plots; water temperature; and salinity. The Marine Operations Division of the Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institution provided the original submersible data. Quality assurance included a comparsion and synchronization of dive log waypoint depths and CTD depths, review of minimum and maximum values, and deletion of bad values.
