IMOS SOOP Underway Data from AIMS Vessel RV Cape Ferguson Trip 6070 From 01 Oct 2014 To 08 Oct 2014

'Ships of Opportunity' (SOOP) is a facility of the Australian 'Integrated Marine Observing System' (IMOS) project. This data set was collected by the SOOP sub-facility 'Sensors on Tropical Research Vessels' aboard the RV Cape Ferguson Trip 6070. Instrumentation was deployed for measuring Seawater Intake Temperature at 1.9m on trip 6070 from 01 Oct 2014 through to 08 Oct 2014, and the installation was located at/on RV Cape Ferguson. Sensor deployed was a SBE 38 remote temperature sensor manufactured by Sea-Bird Electronics, Inc., model SBE 38. Instrumentation was deployed for measuring Salinity at 1.9m on trip 6070 from 01 Oct 2014 through to 08 Oct 2014, and the installation was located at/on RV Cape Ferguson. Sensor deployed was a SBE 21 conductivity cell manufactured by Sea-Bird Electronics, Inc., model SBE 21. Instrumentation was deployed for measuring Turbidity at 1.9m on trip 6070 from 01 Oct 2014 through to 08 Oct 2014, and the installation was located at/on RV Cape Ferguson. Sensor deployed was a Wet Labs FLNTU-RT Optical sensor (Turbidity and Fluorescence) manufactured by Wetlabs, model FLNTU-RT. Instrumentation was deployed for measuring Fluorescence at 1.9m on trip 6070 from 01 Oct 2014 through to 08 Oct 2014, and the installation was located at/on RV Cape Ferguson. Sensor deployed was a Wet Labs FLNTU-RT Optical sensor (Turbidity and Fluorescence) manufactured by Wetlabs, model FLNTU-RT. The RV Cape Ferguson is operated as a platform under the sub-Facility "Sensors on Tropical Research Vessels" of the IMOS Facility "Enhancement of Measurements on Ships of Opportunity (SOOP)".

Data collected during these periods: 01 Oct 2014 to 08 Oct 2014
