Continuous thermosalinograph oceanography along RV MARIA S. MERIAN cruise MSM98/2


Underway temperature and salinity data was collected along the cruise track with two autonomous measurement systems. Usually, the systems are changed after 6 hours. While temperature is taken at the water inlet in about 6.5 m depth, salinity is estimated within the interior measurement container from conductivity and interior temperature. Salinity was calibrated independently for both measurement containers (MCs). No correction was done for temperature. For details to all processing steps see Data Processing Report.

Salinity Offset MC1 = 0.000542 Salinity Offset MC2 = -0.003731Version 2, 2022-05-10: Previous version doi: needed improved quality flagging.
