NRDA-processed CTD data from the HENRY B. BIGELOW in the Gulf of Mexico, Cruise 2 Leg 1, collected from 2010-08-14 to 2010-08-20, associated with the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill event (NCEI Accession 0128115)

Metadata Updated: March 10, 2021

Conductivity Temperature and Depth (CTD) measurements were collected aboard the R/V Henry Bigelow to determine physical oceanographic parameters of the water column, and in some cases used to help guide sample collection as part of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill sampling effort. Temperature, conductivity/salinity, depth, dissolved oxygen, and fluorometry data were collected onboard the R/V Henry Bigelow, Cruise 02. The final product is a series of NetCDF files containing every CTD cast that has been processed and quality checked.
