Dataset identification

Title of datasetTurbidity (NTU) data from the EMSO-Azores observatory, 2016-2017
Narrative summary of datasetThis dataset contains turbidity (NTU) data acquired between September 2016 and February 2017 using a Wetlabs turbidimeter (ECO-BBRTD, serial # 215R) installed horizontally at 1.5 m height at the top of the SeaMoN East frame. The sensor was not calibrated as the sizes of the natural particles are unknown. Data was acquired every 15 minutes. The instrument is part of the SeaMoN East ecological monitoring node.
