Folger Deep Conductivity Temperature Depth Deployed 2009-08-28

The Sea-Bird SeaCAT SBE16plus 6001 was deployed on 2009-08-28 at Folger Deep. Folger Deep is a deep location in Folger Passage near a pillar-like seamount, where productivity and marine mammals are observed. This device is a Conductivity Temperature Depth. Conductivity Temperature Depth (CTD) is an instrument package that contains sensors for measuring the conductivity, temperature, and pressure of seawater. Salinity, sound velocity, depth and density are variables that can be derived from sensor measurements. CTDs can carry additional instruments and sensors such as oxygen sensors, turbidity sensors and fluorometers. It was deployed on a fixed platform. Data from this deployment were archived and made available through Ocean Networks Canada's Oceans 2.0 digital infrastructure, with quality assurance and derived data products following established practices.
