Averages of EPSONDE Microstructure Profiles

Deep Site, Seward Johnson 95-08

Typically, an EPSONDE microstructure profile is the average of 10 deployments of the EPSONDE instrument. One microstructure profile per profile number. During Seward Johnson cruise SJ9508, 20 deployments were made during each sampling event resulting in 2 microstructure profiles for each profile number.

DMO Note: This data set as submitted contained the parameter "station". In the context of our definition, station was used incorrectly. We have changed this parameter to "profile" with the definition of: consecutively numbered EPSONDE profile. Users consulting the GSO Tech. Report should equate profile number with station number.
