PARTICULATE ORGANIC CARBON, cloud amount/frequency and other data from COLUMBUS ISELIN in the NW Atlantic, South Atlantic Ocean and SW Atlantic from 1991-11-05 to 1991-11-23 (NCEI Accession 9300014)

Metadata Updated: December 4, 2020

Transmissity and fluorescence data collected as part of AMASSEDS (A Multidisciplinary Amazon Shelf SEDiment Study). The primary objective of AMASSEDS is to understand the sedimentary processes on the continental shelf near the mouth of the Amazon River; the physical oceanography component of AMASSEDS is directed toward understanding circulation and boundary layer processes in this region. Data were collected in conjunction with CTD observations made on the North Brazil shelf aboard the R/V ISELIN (cruise #I9113) from November 5-25, 1991. CTD data were collected with a Neil Brown Instrument Systems (NBIS) model MKIII CTD fish. CTD data were filed at NODC as file type F022, Reference #TW4831. Transmissity data were collected with Sea Tech 5cm path transmissometer; data were used in calculating suspended sediment concentration in mg/liter. Associated flourescence data is under Ref.# L01572. Data were submitted to NODC on floppy diskette in ASCII by Dr. Richard Limeburner. Header information is contained in each file; a companion report, WOODS HOLE Oceanogr. Inst. Tech. Rept. WHOI-92-27, was included in the documentation.
