Profile data from CTD casts aboard the F/V Ocean Explorer in the Arctic Ocean and Beaufort Sea from 2008-08-06 to 2008-08-22 (NODC Accession 0001920)

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

This profile data aboard the F/V Ocean Explorer in the Arctic Ocean and Beaufort Sea from August 6, 2008 to August 22, 2008 was supported by the Minerals Management Service. It is a collaborative effort with University of Alaska - Fairbanks investigators working with NOAA-NMFS-AFSC and the University of Washington. The data set included in this submission is the physical oceanography portion of the Beaufort Sea Fish Monitoring program. This submission contains only CTD data. The program is for an assessment of marine fish resources in the Alaskan Beaufort Sea. It also addresses the following NOAA mission goals: 1. Protect, restore, and manage the use of coastal and ocean resources through an ecosystem approach to management. 2. Understand climate variability and change to enhance society's ability to plan and respond. This survey represents the first comprehensive fisheries survey of the Alaskan Beaufort Sea conducted in more that 20 years. 3. Support the nation's commerce with information for safe, efficient, and environmentally sound transportation. If offshore oil development proceeds in this area, it is likely that produced oil will be transported onshore by underwater pipelines.
