MABEL 1 - Transmissometer dataset

Metadata

Instrument: Chelsea Technologies Group Alphatracka II
Investigator: Giuditta Marinaro (INGV)
Project: MABEL
Observatory: SN-2

Citation: Marinaro, Giuditta. (2005). Transmissometer dataset (Ctg Alphatracka II @ 1 sample / hour) from INGV/SN-2 seafloor platform during MABEL project in Weddell Sea site (Weddell Sea), part of PNRA network.

Abstract: Alphatracka MKII is a transmissometer monitors the total suspended matter in water by measuring the beam attenuation coefficient alfa at 660 nm.

Purpose: Transmissometer provides information about possible suspension of particle matter due to bottom currents.

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