Physical oceanography based on ship CTD during RV POLARSTERN cruise PS124


This dataset contains the hydrographic profile data collected with the ship based CTD rosette during the cruise PS124 - COSMUS (Continental Shelf Multidisciplinary Flux Study). The CTD is an SBE911plus with 24 bottles, 12 liters each. The CTD/Rosette was equipped with duplicate sensors for temperature, salinity, and oxygen, and one sensor each for pressure, substance fluorescence Chl. a, and beam transmission. An altimeter was mounted to monitor the distance to the seafloor. The dataset contains calibrated and quality-controlled parameters as well as uncalibrated parameters, where no quality control was applied. Quality flags are given based on paragraph 6. "Quality flags" from . The CTD bottle data, the cruise report as well as publications using this data are linked below. Additional information on the sensor used for the final data set as well as the water depth is given in a separate info-file.

Additional metadata is available in the file PS124_header_info regarding water depth, altimeter reading the sensor channel used.
