Moving vessel profiler (MVP) data collected during Maria S. Merian cruise MSM89


The Moving Vessel Profiler (MVP) is a CTD system that can be deployed from a moving ship, allowing for the sampling of water masses at high horizontal resolution with high accuracy of pressure, temperature, conductivity and other attached sensors. Processing of the data includes a fall-rate dependent correction of the thermal lag of the conductivity sensor and follows the approach described by Ullman and David (2014) for Underway CTD (UCTD) systems. Subsequently the corrected data was calibrated against the calibrated coincident Thermosalinograph and the calibrated nearby CTD data.
