Details of Gombessa 5 cruise: CTD profiles in western Mediterranean, July 2019


Dataset identification

Title of datasetGombessa 5 cruise: CTD profiles in western Mediterranean, July 2019
Narrative summary of datasetThis dataset contains the CTD data collected during the GOMBESSA 5 cruise, from 1 to 25 July 2019, in the western Mediterranean, jointly by the (MEGAFAUNA research project)-[]. The full-depth CTD profiles were performed using an autonomous SeaBird SBE 19plus V2 SeaCAT Profiler CTD, from the Zembra vessel belonging to (Andromède océanologie)-[] (France). 15 stations, from the depth of 200 m to the surface, were sampled off the French and Monegasque coasts (western Mediterranean basin) between latitude 43.06-43.69 °N and longitude 5.65-7.31 °E. The accuracy, specified by the manufacturer, were ± 0.005 °C for temperature and ± 0.0005 S/m for conductivity. The dataset is provided as an ODV (Ocean Data View) collection, which contains, for each station the following parameters: Depth [salt_water,m] Temperature [ITS-90,deg-C] pH Salinity [PSU] Conductivity [S/m] Density [kg/m^3] Oxygen [mL/L] Oxygen_sat [% saturation] Oxygen_umoll [umol/L] Turbidity [NTU] Fluorescence [mg/m^3] Light [PAR/Irradiance] The ZIP archives contain 1/ a map of stations 2/ the list of the ID stations and geographic coordinates 3/ all raw data acquired, for all parameters, in ODV format, 4/ in NetCDF format, 5/ in CSV format and 6/ one vertical profile graph of the Sea Water Temperature for each station. All data acquired are publicly accessible without any restriction (under CC-BY licence). The extracted data are accessible from this GOMBESSA 5 landing page with a downloadable ZIP file. 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.
