Georges Bank BIOMAPERII Environmental (CTD+) Data

These data are from the Enviromental Sensing System (ESS) part of the BIO-Optical Multi-frequency Acoustical and Physical Environmental Recorder or BIOMAPER II.* (1)

"The system consists of a multi-frequency sonar (up-looking and down-looking pairs of transducers operating at five frequencies: 43,120,200,420, and 1000kHz), a video plankton recorder system (VPR), an environmental sensor system (CTD, fluorometer, transmissometer), and several other bio-optical sensors (down- and upwelling spectral radiometers, spectral attenuation, and backscattering, and absorption meters)." *(2)
