Title:
Temperature data from thermistor casts in the Atlantic Ocean's coastal waters off Florida by from 01 January 2000 to 31 December 2003 (NODC Accession 0002518)
Abstract:
Temperature data were collected using SBE 39 thermistor casts in the Atlantic Ocean's coastal waters off Florida from January 1, 2000 to December 31, 2003 as part of the Nearshore benthic-pelagic coupling: Coral growth responses to internal tidal forcing on the Florida Keys coral reefs (NSF award OCE-0242157). The data are from multiple depth-specific stations located on each of a series of sites along the Florida Keys reef tract, USA. The depth-specific locations correspond to points at 30 m, 20 m, and 10 m depth along each reef slope. The depth-specific locations within each site are located within 50 to 100 m of each other in a line running up the reef slope. Each file contains data for a single site and columns within the file corresponds to each depth-specific station as described below. Data were collected and submitted by James J. Leichter of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. (NODC Accession 0002518)
