Details of Underway fluorometer data from cruise ETS_2018_03_12


Dataset identification

Title of datasetUnderway fluorometer data from cruise ETS_2018_03_12
Narrative summary of datasetThe dataset contains pairs of files with fluorometer data acquiured underway during the cruise. The first file in a pair named "fluoXX", where XX is sequentional number, contains raw output of fluorometer. Each record in the file contains: global time (seconds from 01/01/1970), internal No, date, time, Chl-a value, and temperature value. The second file in a pair named "gpsXX" contains the respective GPS data: global time (seconds from 01/01/1970) and GPS GPGGA sentence in each record. The fluorometer model: 10-AU-005-CE of Turner Design. The raw output from the autoranging fluorometer has no absolute meaning without calibration against sample data, however it allows to investigate spatial variablity of parameter.
Summary of processing methodologyThe fluorometer periodically undergoes laboratory calibration.
