NPS/RSMAS – MacMahan/Reniers

Summary of NPS/UM Measurements During NRI2012

 Long-term measurements:

5/2/12 – 5/20/12          pressure and temperature measured offshore (foghorn) and in backbay (past Snead’s Ferry Rd. bridge)

5/8/12 – 5/20/12          mega-marans deployed offshore and in channel with downward-looking AWAC (only in channel), thermistor string, CTD, optical sensor (Chl, NTU), and pressure sensor

Daily measurements:

NOTE: “mini-cat” measurements generally include pressure sensor near sea-bed, optical sensor (Chl, NTU) near sea-surface, downward-looking Aquadopp, GPS

NOTE: “mega-ripple frame” measurements generally include deploying a large frame with several ADVs and a horizontal-looking Aquadopp; walking surveys around the frame were also performed

RSMAS Brian Haus & CSTARS

Types of data:

Wind = wind velocity from an ultrasonic anemometer and an R.M. Young (the first can give wind stress information, the later simple wind speed and direction)
Rel. Humidity = Relative Humidity
CO2/H2O = concentrations in the air
BP = barometric pressure
Air Temp = Air Tempurature
ADV = ADV data from our boat-mounted paired-ADV’s
ADCP = boat-mounted downward looking RDI Workhorse
Turbidity = we had an OBS-3+ from Campbell Scientific, Low range = 0 to 250 NTU and High Range = 0 to 1000 NTU
Water Temp = water temperature
Waves = we measured waves from 2 different sets of wave wires, an ultrasonic distance meter, and a laser distance meter
Radiation = solar radiation from a radiometer
Green = data
Yellow = no data
