Saanich Inlet Sill Conductivity Temperature Depth Deployed 2019-11-01

The Sea-Bird SeaCAT SBE19plus V2 4996 was deployed on 2019-11-01 at Saanich Inlet Sill. Saanich Inlet Sill is a shallow bottom feature in the Saanich Inlet. The sill influences flow of oxygenated water and seasonal cycles. 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.
