WATER TEMPERATURE, SALINITY, and others collected from R.V.I. Nathaniel B. Palmer in Eastern Ross Sea, Amundsen Sea from 2010-02-05 to 2010-03-03 (NCEI Accession 0164566)

This dataset contains profiles of temperature, conductivity, dissolved oxygen, and currents, measured using equipment property of Texas A&M University. The basic CTD package consisted of a Sea-Bird Electronics SBE911+ CTD body and deck unit system fitted with dual ducted conductivity-temperature sensors paired with pumps, and a single SBE-43 dissolved oxygen sensor. A downward-looking Teledyne RD Instruments 300 kHz Workhorse Sentinel Lowered ADCP was used to profile currents. This instrument comes with its own internal compass and tilt sensors and was calibrated in McMurdo with the same battery pack used during the cruise. Water samples were drawn from 12 10-liter Niskin bottles using a 24-position SBE-32 Carousel sampler triggered through the Sea- Bird 11+ deck unit. To guide the approach to the ocean floor a Teledyne Benthos 200 kHz sonar altimeter was mounted on the lower frame of the rosette. Most profiles reached to within 10 m of the bottom.

CTD data were acquired and processed using Sea-Bird Seasave software, version 7.18c on a laptop computer running Windows XP Professional. Immediately after each cast all CTD/LADCP raw data outputs were copied over to the ships network. Processed CTD data files were made available to all science staff generally within an hour of each cast completion.
