Relative dissolved organic matter DOM fluorescence, using CDOM fluorometer [WSCD] (WETLabs) during the Tara Pacific Expedition 2016-2018


The Tara Pacific expedition (2016-2018) sampled coral ecosystems around 32 islands in the Pacific Ocean, and sampled the surface of oceanic waters at 249 locations, resulting in the collection of nearly 58,000 samples. The expedition was designed to systematically study corals, fish, plankton, and seawater, and included the collection of samples for advanced biogeochemical, molecular, and imaging analysis. Here we provide the continuous dataset originating from CDOM fluorometer [WSCD] (WETLabs) instruments acquiring continuously during the full course of the campaign. Surface seawater was pumped continuously through a hull inlet located 1.5 m under the waterline using a membrane pump (10 LPM; Shurflo), circulated through a vortex debubbler, a flow meter, and distributed to a number of flow-through instruments. The CDOM fluorometer [WSCD] (WETLabs), was added to the underway system to measure the fluorescence of colored dissolved organic matter [fdom].
