Bio-optical spar buoy data collected from the UCSB SPAR buoy configured with ECO-FLNTU Chlorophyll a and Optical Backscatter sensors. Data from both sensor types (chl a and optical backscatter) were compared with data from other sensors measuring similar data and the offsets were determined to be unacceptably large, combined with too short a sampling interval. Therefore, the data will not be published.

A schematic of the UCSB SPAR buoy configuration (as deployed during OC404-1 cruise) is available as a PDF file.
