LIDO 1 - Turbidity meter dataset

Metadata

Instrument: Wet Labs ECO-BB(RT)D 6000m
Investigator: Nadia Lo Bue (INGV)
Project: ESONET-NOE-LIDO
Observatory: GEOSTAR

Citation: Lo Bue, Nadia. (2009). Turbidity meter dataset (ECO-BB(RT)D 6000m @ 1 sample / hour) from INGV/GEOSTAR seafloor platform during ESONET-NOE-LIDO project in Iberian Margin site (Gulf of Cadiz), part of EMSO network.

Abstract: Turbidity measurements were provided by means of an auxiliary turbidity meter sensor (made by WetLabs manufacturer) connected to the CTD probe. The collection period ranges from November 2009 through July July 2010.

Purpose: CTD and turbidity meter have been used in order to monitoring possible variations of bottom sea water masses in an area strongly interested by the mixing of different water masses (Mediterranean and Atlantic waters). Turbidity measurement also provides information about possible resuspension of particle matter due to bottom currents.
