Details of uCTD Data 2nd QC- EUREC4A_OA/ATOMIC


Dataset identification

Title of datasetuCTD Data 2nd QC- EUREC4A_OA/ATOMIC
Narrative summary of datasetThe EUREC4A-OA oceanographic campaign that took place in January-February 2020 in the tropical North-West Atlantic Ocean aboard several research vessels, was a contribution to the broader international research initiative EUREC4A ( The cruise was carried out in conjunction with the research vessels L'Atalante (France), Maria S. Merian and Meteor (Germany) and the Ron Brown (USA) as well as with the aircraft and UAV operations and continuous observations from the ground site on the island of Barbados (BCO) and the Saildrone© operations as part of the US ATOMIC project. This dataset is composed of the uCTD measurements obtained from the R/Vs L'Atalante and Maria S. Merian, processed using a toolbox from GEOMAR-PO based on the article from Ullman and Hebert (JAOT, 2014). A secondary quality check is performed by comparing the uCTD measurements with the nearest CTD stations. Important Note: This submission has been initially submitted to SEA scieNtific Open data Edition (SEANOE) publication service and received the recorded DOI. The metadata elements have been further processed (refined) in EMODnet Ingestion Service in order to conform with the Data Submission Service specifications.
