Hydrography of the Beagle Channel (CTD data)


This study is the first integrated assessment of the main oceanographic features of the Beagle Channel, using data from several oceanographic cruises conducted between 19-25 October 2016, 19-26 July 2017 and 18-23 July 2018 by the IDEAL center (Research Center: Dynamics of High Latitude Marine Ecosystems). During 2016 transects were done between the NW entrance of the Beagle Channel up to Yendegaia bay (mid of the channel). In winter 2017, simultaneous to the IDEAL transect, a full oceanographic survey onboard M/O Bernardo Houssay (PNA, Argentina) by researchers of CADIC (Austral Center for Scientific Research in Ushuaia) was conducted from nearby Yendegaia bay to the eastern limit of the Beagle Channel (27-30 August 2017), thus closing for the first time a full, high resolution, hydrographic section along the entire Channel. During 18-23 July 2018 the NW branch and the SW branch of the Beagle Channel was surveyed.The study was funded by the IDEAL center (https://www.centroideal.cl/, award: FONDAP 15150003).
