GCE-LTER Data Set Summary

Accession: PHY-GCEM-0505e Research Theme: Physical Oceanography (Monitoring)
Contributors: Jackson O. Blanton, Julie Amft, Ken Helm, Wade Sheldon
Title: Continuous salinity, temperature and depth measurements from moored hydrographic data loggers deployed at GCE7_Hydro (Altamaha River near Carrs Island, Georgia) from 01-Jan-2004 through 31-Dec-2004
Abstract: Conductivity, temperature and pressure were measured continuously at Georgia Coastal Ecosystems LTER sampling location GCE7_Hydro (Altamaha River near Carrs Island, Georgia) from 01-Jan-2004 through 31-Dec-2004. Observations were logged at 30 minute intervals by moored Sea-Bird Electronics MicroCAT 37-SM data loggers and downloaded approximately bimonthly. Salinity, depth and sigma-t were calculated from the measured parameters using standard UNESCO algorithms. This data set was collected as part of the GCE-LTER Project continuous salinity, temperature and water level monitoring program.
