Physical oceanography at CTD stations during RV MARIA S. MERIAN cruise MSM104


Physical oceanography data was acquired by a ship-based Seabird SBE911+ CTD-Rosette system onboard of the RV. M.S. Merian during research cruise MSM104. The ship-based CTD system is comprised of a Seabird SBE911Plus including dual respectively redundant sensor and pump packages. The SBE11plus Deck Unit remains on board in a laboratory and supplies on one hand power to the SBE9plus underwater unit, on the other hand data telemetry between the SBE9plus and a measurement PC. The SBE9plus underwater unit itself holds a pressure sensor and is interfacing with dual SEB3 temperature, SBE4 conductivity and SBE43 oxygen sensors and two SBE5 pumps to provide a pumped water supply past each sensor. The system carried an FLNTU sensor to measure a combination of back-scattering, turbidity, and chlorophyll-a.
