NEAREST 1 - CTD dataset

Metadata

Instrument: SeaBird SBE 16plus
Investigator: Nadia Lo Bue (INGV)
Project: NEAREST
Observatory: GEOSTAR

Abstract: The dataset contains sea bottom Conductivity, Temperature and Pressure data (about 1 m above the bottom) acquired through a SBE 16 plus installed on GEOSTAR station. The collection period ranges from August 2007 through July 2008.

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).

Quality of data: The series is complete and continue through all period of measurement, without gap of data or relevant sensor problem.
