Details of The 2014 Greenland-Portugal GEOVIDE CTDO2 hydrographic and SADCP data (GO-SHIP A25 and GEOTRACES GA01)


Dataset identification

Title of datasetThe 2014 Greenland-Portugal GEOVIDE CTDO2 hydrographic and SADCP data (GO-SHIP A25 and GEOTRACES GA01)
Narrative summary of datasetThe GEOVIDE cruise was carried out coast to coast between Portugal and Newfoundland via the south tip of Greenland, following the OVIDE line in the eastern part and crossing the Labrador Sea in the western part. The classical hydrographic rosette was cast 163 times at 78 different geographical positions called stations. While the CTD-O2 probe acquired continuous profiles of the “physical” variables (pressure, temperature, salinity and dissolved oxygen), 22 Niskin bottles were closed at different levels during the upcast to provide samples for biogeochemical analysis. After calibration, we find precisions for pressure, temperature, salinity and dissolved oxygen that fit the GO-SHIP international quality requirements. In parallel, but not simultaneously, a trace-metal rosette (TMR) was cast 53 times, also acquiring profiles of physical variables, and equipped with 24 Go-Flo bottles adapted for the sampling of trace metals. Depending on the number of operations, stations were identified as “Short” (one single CTD cast), “Large” (3 CTD casts), “XLarge” (up to 6) and “Super” (up to 11). All along the track of the ship, current magnitude and direction was measured by Ship Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers, down to 1000m depth.  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.
