Discrete particulate organic carbon (POC) concentration and flux data from three visits to site P3 in 2017


Discrete measurements of particulate organic carbon (POC) concentration and flux were made on the RRS Discovery during COMICS cruise DY086 at site P3 in the South Atlantic from November to December, 2017 (Giering et al. 2023). Data is from a variety of equipment including marine snow catchers, neutrally-buoyant sediment traps (PELAGRA) and a stand-alone pump system. Marine snow catchers settled on-deck for 2 hours. Slow sinking particles were collected from the base and fast sinking particles were collected from the tray. These data were used along with bottle POC data to calibrate glider backscatter data from the GOCART project.
