Bottom Dissolved Oxygen Maps From SEAMAP Summer and Fall Groundfish/Shrimp Surveys from 1982 to 1998 (NCEI Accession 0155488)

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

Bottom dissolved oxygen (DO) data was extracted from environmental profiles acquired during the Southeast Fisheries Science Center Mississippi Laboratories summer groundfish trawl surveys of the Western and North-central Gulf of Mexico from 1982-1998. The data were distributed to hypoxia researchers in near real time and used to generate bottom DO maps as part of the Hypoxia Watch Project (http://www.ncddc.noaa.gov/hypoxia/). The profiles were acquired with a Sea-Bird Model SB9 profiler equipped with pressure, temperature, conductivity, fluorescence, and beam transmission sensors. The data were processed with Sea-Bird software using the standard processing protocol developed by the Mississippi Laboratories. Water temperature, beam transmission, and derived salinity, DO and DO percent saturation, and density were retained in the processed files. SAS software was used to extract the bottom DO and other relevant data (e.g., date, time, position, and station number) and format the data as comma-delimited ASCII files.
