Water temperature, salinity, and other physical, chemical, and biological parameters taken by CTD and multi parameter water quality sonde on board of research vessel Pelican on the Texas-Louisiana continental shelf, Gulf of Mexico from 2016-06-14 2016-10-26 (NCEI Accession 0205845)

This dataset contains water temperature, salinity, and other physical, chemical, and biological parameters taken by CTD and water quality sonde in the Gulf of Mexico from 2016-06-14 2016-10-26. Two sets of CTD data were taken during the abridged 2016 Supplemental Hypoxia cruise(only transects C & F) in August 2016 off the Louisiana continental shelf. Hydrographic data were obtained with the Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium (LUMCON) SeaBird 911+ CTD system and a a multi parameter water quality sonde (YSI 6820). Nutrient, pigment, suspended sediment, surface salinity, Secchi depth, Winkler results, and station information data were also acquired. Due to the late resolution of the use of NOAA's Nancy Foster for the 2016 shelf-wide cruise to map hypoxia in the northern Gulf of Mexico, there was no suitable vessel available for the time period in late July as determined by Dr. Nancy Rabalais to be the most appropriate and consistent timing. Instead, NOAA NCCOS agreed to fund a single cruise on the traditionally collected stations on transects C and F to merge with other long-term data. The R/V Pelican was not available until August 22-23, 2016, which were the dates of the Supplemental Survey. Additionally, profiles were taken throughout the year at station C6C. Original data in Excel format (XLSX)were converted to ASCII (CSV) format.
