Temperature, salinity, and extracted chlorophyll_a surface data collected at discrete stations during shipboard surveys conducted between January 1998 and August 2012 in South Florida coastal waters.
Description:
Abstract:
A Sea-Bird Electronics Conductivity, Temperature, Depth (CTD) instrument and a Sea-Bird Electronics Thermosalinograph (TSG) flow-through system were utilized during cruises conducted between January 1998 and August 2012 in South Florida coastal waters. These data are presented here in an Excel format (.xls).
Purpose:
These oceanographic data were collected for the purpose of examining water properties of the South Florida coastal ocean, covering the Florida Keys Reef Tract and the southwest Florida Shelf.
