METADATA
Station = ECOHAB-PNW station sampled.
Survey = Designated Survey or Period defined for each cruise.
Date (GMT) = Date of sample.
Event = Name assigned to the sampling event.
Source = Sample source type (BKT=bucket; CTD=conductivity,temperature,depth; NET=net tow).
===========================================
POSITION Information
Depth(M) = Depth in meters of sample.
depthID = Unique ID in ECOHAB-PNW database; can delete.
long dd = Longitude in decimal degrees.
lat dd = Latitude in decimal degrees.
===========================================
PSEUDO_NITZSCHIA DATA
PN RelAbund = Quantative measurement of Pseudo-nitzschia relative abundance as opposed to
other organisms present in a net tow sample viewed under the microscope.
PN Total (cells/L) = Total number of Pseudo-nitzschia cells present. (cell counts)
%PN (p/m) = Percentage of Pseudo-nitzschia comprised of pungens/multiseries species.
%PN (a/f/h) = Percentage of Pseudo-nitzschia comprised of australis/fraudulenta/heimii species.
%PN (pd/d) = Percentage of Pseudo-nitzschia comprised of pseudo-deli/delicatissima series.
Chl-a(µg/L) = Chlorophyll-a.
===========================================
NUTRIENT DATA
NO3+NO2(µM) = Nitrate + Nitrite.
SiO2(µM) = Silicate.
H2PO4(µM) = Phosphorus.
===========================================
DOMOIC ACID DATA
RBA pDA (nM) = Particulate domoic acid measured using the Receptor Binding Assay method.
ELISA pDA (ng/L) = Particulate domoic acid measured using the ELISA method.
dDA(nM) = Dissolved domoic acid.
Bacteria(cells/L) = Bacteria.
Cyanobacteria(cells/L) = Cyanobacteria.
Fe(nM) = Iron.
===========================================
CTD DATA COLLECTED AT TIME BOTTLE WAS TAKEN
bottle = Niskin Bottle position of the CTD Rosette.
Pr = Pressure (deciBars).
DepS = Actual Depth (meters).
temp1 = Primary Temperature (degrees Celsius).
temp2 = Secondary Temperature (degrees Celsius).
sal1_uncorrected = Salinity from primary Temperature and Conductivity sensors, uncorrected (psu).
sal2_uncorrected = Salinity from secondary Temperature and Conductivity sensors, uncorrected (psu).
sal1_corrected = Salinity from primary Temperature and Conductivity sensors, corrected by calibration (psu).
sal2_corrected = Salinity from secondary Temperature and Conductivity sensors, corrected by calibration (psu).
par = Irradiance, Photosynthetically Activated Radiation (a measure of light intensity).
v_fl = Fluorescence Voltage.
fls = Seapoint Fluorometer measurement of Chloraphyll concentration (mg per liter), uncalibrated.
v_transmiss = Transmissonmeter Voltage.
bat = Beam Attenuation (no units).
v_ox = Oxygen voltage from SeaBird SBE43 oxygen sensor, uncalibrated.
sbeox0ML_L = Oxygen concentration from SeaBird SBE43 oxygen sensor (ml per liter), uncalibrated.
v_par = Photosynthetically Activated Radiation - voltage.
