Details of Continuous thermosalinograph data collected during Med-SHIP cruise TAlPro2022


Dataset identification

Title of datasetContinuous thermosalinograph data collected during Med-SHIP cruise TAlPro2022
Narrative summary of datasetThis data set contains underway Temperature, Conductivity, Salinity and Potential Density anomaly data collected by a Thermosalinograph (TSG) during the MedSHIP cruise TAlPro2022 (on the Belgia vessel RV BELGICA) in the Western Mediterranean Sea in May 2022. Underway data was collected along the cruise track with an autonomous TSG system, consisting of a SBE21 together with a SBE38 Thermometer. Both systems worked independent from each other throughout the cruise. While temperature is taken at the water inlet (SBE38), salinity and density are calculated within the interior TSG from conductivity and interior temperature (SBE21)
