Dataset identification

Title of datasetCTD Cumnija Bay
Narrative summary of datasetThe dataset consists of 40 CTD profiles which were collected during 6 surveys in the period between 17th and 22nd September 1996. The stations covered an area of about 8km2 and included measurements of sea currents. The measurements were made in connection with an oceanographic survey commissioned by Water Services Corporation with the intention of studying the hydrographic characteristics of this marine area for the purpose of a sewage outfall.
Summary of processing methodologyThe raw data was available as Ascii files. This data was then validated using standard procedures and converted to SeaDataNet approved formats, ODV for the data and XML for the metadata.
