Continuous thermosalinograph oceanography along RV SONNE cruise track SO287


Underway temperature and salinity data was collected along the cruise track with two autonomous measurement systems, called self-cleaning monitoring boxes (SMBs). Usually, the SMBs are changed after 12 hours. While temperature is taken at the water inlet in about 4 m depth, salinity is estimated within the SMB from conductivity and interior temperature. Salinity and temperature were calibrated with CTD values from 7m depth. For details to all processing steps see Data Processing Report.
