Description:
Abstract:
The Ocean Data Platform (ODP) is placed on the sea floor to measure water current profiles, waves, temperature and conductivity. The ODP consists of an upward looking acoustic doppler current profiler (ADP) (SonTek/YSI ADP, www.ysi.com) and a temperature/conductivity recorder (Model SBE37-SM, Sea-Bird Electronics, Inc., www.seabird.com). This metadata record refers to the SBE37-SM dataset. When an ODP is recovered, another one is typically deployed in the same place. Time series data combining multiple deployments from a given site may also be available. Please contact CRED with any questions. For program information see the web site <http://www.pifsc.noaa.gov/cred/oceanography.php>
Purpose:
Monitoring of temperature, conductivity, currents and waves provides information about environmental factors influencing coral reef ecosystems.
Supplemental_Information:
Platform Manufacturer: Sound Ocean Systems, Inc. (SOSI), Platform Model: ODP, Platform Serial Number: 267008; Instrument Manufacturer: Sea-Bird Electronics, Inc., Instrument Model: SBE 37SM MicroCAT C-T Recorder (Serial interface and Memory) with RS-232 Interface, Instrument Serial Number: 37SM305932691. This record refers to two (2) data files that have the same name as this metadata file. The file with extension .ASC is the raw data uploaded from the instrument, including header information. Files with extension .CDP (CRED Data Product) have had the header information, pre and post deployment data removed and a preliminary quality control conducted by plotting and reviewing the recorded data and removing obviously erroneous records. Each row corresponds to a data record. Data within the .CDP file is supplied in columnar ASCII format: Column01: Year (UTC), Column02: Month (UTC), Column03: Day (UTC), Column04: Hour (UTC), Column05: Minute (UTC), Column06: Second (UTC), Column07: Temperature (Degrees Celsius), Column08: Conductivity (Siemens/meter), Column09: Salinity (PSU). Instrument Specifications: Temperature (Degrees Celsius): Measurement Range -5 to 35; Initial Accuracy +/-0.002, Typical Stability 0.0002 per month, Resolution 0.0001. Conductivity (Siemens/meter): Measurement Range 0 to 7; Initial Accuracy 0.0003; Typical Stability 0.0003 per month; Resolution 0.00001. Clock Accuracy: 5 seconds per month..
