Bottom Trawl Survey CTD data in 2008, Forage Distribution and Ocean Conditions (B62)

This data set contains Conductivity, Temperature, Depth (CTD) measurements from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Alaska Fisheries Science Center (NOAA/AFSC) bottom trawl survey cruises in the Bering Sea during the 2008-2010 study period. These measurements include gridded temperature and salinity measurements. Data are in NetCDF format. Each NetCDF file contains approximately 300 CTD vertical profiles of water temperature and salinity and the derived variables of density anomaly (sigma-t) and dynamic height anomaly. The maps show survey age, temperature, and salinity at 5-m and the bottom. Data were collected from June 2008 through July 2008.
