Underway Seawater Sampling Aboard F/V Aldebaran in Winter and Summer 2008, Forage Distribution and Ocean Conditions (B62)

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)/Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory (PMEL)/Ecosystems and Fisheries-Oceanography Coordinated Investigations (EcoFOCI) scientists outfitted Trident Seafoods F/V Aldebaran with instruments to measure water temperature, salinity and chlorophyll concentration in water pumped from the ship's sea chest at 3 m depth. Outfitting Aldebaran to make oceanographic measurements had another advantage. She was also used by NOAA as a contract survey vessel during the summer Bering Sea bottom trawl survey in June-July 2008. Therefore summer measurements were gathered from the same instruments. Data from both cruises are included in this data set. Note: Data have been updated as of 09 January 2012.
