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 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.
Purpose: BASIC RESEARCH
Supplemental_Information:
In this Accession, NODC has archived multiple versions of these data. The latest (and best) version of these data has the largest version number.
