Physical oceanography during SONNE cruise SO248 (BacGeoPac)


The data presented here were collected during the cruise SO248 (Project BacGeoPac) with the RV Sonne from Auckland, New Zealand to Dutch Harbor, Alaska/USA. The cruise lasted from May 1, 2016 to June 3, 2016 and 19 vertical CTD-hauls were conducted. The CTD system used during this cruise was a Sea-Bird Electronics Inc. SBE 911plus probe (SN 09-1266). The CTD was attached to a SBE 32 Carousel Water Sampler (SN 32-1119) containing 24 20-liter Ocean Test Equipment Inc. bottles. The system was equipped with double temperature (SBE 3) and conductivity sensors (SBE 4), a pressure sensor (Digiquartz) an oxygen (Aanderaa Optode 4831F) and, an altimeter (Bentos) and a chlorophyll fluorometer combined with a turbidity sensor (FluoroWetlabECO _AFL FL). The sensors were pre-calibrated by the manufacturers. The data were recorded with the Seasave V 7.23.2 software and processed using the SeaBird SBE Data Processing and the ManageCTD-software. The data were processed in the following way: Data obtained during adaptation of the CTD to ambient water conditions were removed manually. The “wildedit”, “loopedit”, “despike”, “binavg” routines were applied. The data were also visually checked and a double sensor check was conducted. The accuracy of the double sensors derived from 56 data sets were: Temperature T = 0.0007 °C; Conductivity: C = 0,0071 mS/cm; Salinity S = 0.0081 psu. The salinity data (S by unsing pss78) were converted to absolute Salinity (SA) by using the TEOS 10 toolbox. The ship position data were derived from the shipboard GPS-system linked to the CTD data. The time zone is given in UTC. The oxygen CTD data were validated by additional measurements of 98 water samples using the Winkler titration method.
