Physical data collected from towed CTD from the R/V Lowell Weicker in the eastern Long Island Sound in support of the Collaborative Research: Investigating Tidal Influences on Subtidal Estuary-Coast Exchange Using Observations and Numerical Simulations from 21 July 2009 to 25 August 25, 2010 (NCEI Accession 0115770)

Metadata Updated: June 25, 2021

The dataset is an archive of CTD data obtained from a towed undulating platform (Acrobat) in the region near the mouth of Long Island Sound. The observations were made with a Towed Oceanographic Microstructure and Auxiliary Sensors Instrument (TOMASI) manufactured by Rockland Scientific. The TOMASI was carried aboard a towed undulating vehicle, an Acrobat manufactured by SeaSciences. The Acrobat was towed behind the ship (cable payout is given within the header portion of the data files) and undulated between approximately 2 m below the surface to approximately 5 m above the bottom (or to a maximum depth of about 40 m). The dataset consists of 61 files each containing time series of longitude, latitude, pressure, temperature, conductivity, salinity, and sigma-t.
