ADCP and sediment trap contents data collected at three sites in the Gulf of Mexico from 2010-08-25 to 2016-09-12 (NCEI Accession 0256417)

Metadata Updated: November 1, 2023

ADCP and raw sediment trap data from long-term moorings at three sites in the northern Gulf of Mexico. The sites were chosen to represent three environmental regimes: DWH site (R/V Oceanus Site 26, or OC26; 28°40’N, 88°21.6’W, 1660 m deep)is about 5 km from the Deepwater Horizon spill site; a 'seep' site in the Green Canyon 600 lease block ((27°22.5’N, 90°30.6’W, 1380 m deep); and a 'reference' site in the Atwater Valley 357 lease block (27°22.5’N, 90°30.6’W, 1380 m deep). These data span 2010-08-25 - 2016-09-12 and include ADCP velocity measurements; estimates of particulate carbon and nitrogen, biogenic silica, and transparent exopolymer particles, as well as chemistry of the overlying water; and C-14, C-13, and S-34 isotopes measurements. The sediment traps were located 120 m above the bottom, with an additional trap located at 30 m above the bottom on some of the DWH site deployments.
