CTD Summary Data

This dataset includes extracted summary data from 12000+ Conductivity, Temperature, Depth (CTD) casts conducted in the northern Bering, Chukchi, and southern Beaufort Seas from 1970-present. One record per cast. Each record has station information, date, time, location, water depth, cast depth, surface temperature/salinity, bottom temperature/salinity, temperature maximum, stratification parameters (max Brunt-Vaisala frequency, mixed layer depth), fresh water content, and heat content. This dataset is part of the Pacific Marine Arctic Regional Synthesis (PacMARS) Project. Note: These data were updated on June 4, 2014.
