Water temperature, salinity, and others taken by CTD and Niskin bottles from the research vessel Neil Armstrong, Irminger Sea 5 cruise AR30-03, in the North Atlantic from 2018-06-06 to 2018-06-22 (NCEI Accession 0252116)

Metadata Updated: November 1, 2023

This submission contains salinity-calibrated Conductivity Temperature Depth (CTD) data from the 2018 Ocean Observations Initiative (OOI) Irminger Sea 5 cruise (AR30-03). Data quality control methods have been used to assess performance of the CTD instrument. Resulting high-quality profiles were then used together with salinity bottle data analyzed at sea to create a post-cruise salinity-calibrated CTD product.

This submission has been produced as part of an ongoing effort to more fully utilize CTD data collected by OOI Irminger cruises, which have been taking place annually since 2014. The hydrographic data collection facilitated by OOI in the Irminger Sea currently supports science for not only OOI end users, but also international oceanographic research projects, including the Overturning in the Subpolar North Atlantic Program (https://www.o-snap.org/), Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation Program (https://usclivar.org/amoc) and BioGeoChemical Array for Real-time Geostrophic Oceanography program (https://biogeochemical- argo.org/index.php). Such programs require a higher-level data product than what OOI provides through its standard data dissemination, and hence a quality controlled, salinity-calibrated data product has been produced. Data are in text formats.
