Temperature, marine chemistry, and other data from the Directoria De Hidrografia E Navegacao from 12 March 1969 to 22 May 1969 (NCEI Accession 7300858)

Metadata Updated: March 10, 2021

"Continuing the systematic oceanographic survey in the Brazilian stations in the area from Cabo de Sao Tome to Recife, distributed along coast, the NOc "Almirante Saldanha" has occupied 79 oceanographic 7 profiles having Sao Tome, Vitoria, Abrolhos, Belmonte, Camamu, Garcia D'Avila and Maceio as reference.

Data on Temperature "in situ", salinity, dissolved oxygen, phosphates, nitrates and nitrites contents, pH, and bathythermographs casting, chlorophyles, light's extinction, water transparency, vertical and horizontal plankton sampling were obtained.

The values obtained by the ships were processed in the "Diretoria de Hidrografia e Navegacao" and some graphs were made, representing the horizontal and vertical distribution along the profile of several oceanographic parameters.

A resumed interpretation of the water masses is also presented".
