NODC Standard Format Water Physics and Chemistry (F004) Data (1949-1985) (NCEI Accession 0012901)

Metadata Updated: March 10, 2021

This data set contains data from measurements and analyses of physical and chemical characteristics of the water column. Chemical parameters that may be recorded are salinity, pH and concentration of oxygen, ammonia, nitrate, phosphate, chlorophyll and suspended solids. Physical parameters that may be recorded include temperature, density (sigma-t), transmissivity and current velocity (east-west and north-south components). Cruise and station information may include environmental conditions of the study site at the time of observation. Data are very sparse prior to 1951.
