Barkley Canyon Upper Slope Conductivity Temperature Depth Deployed 2021-03-27

The Sea-Bird SeaCAT SBE19plus V2 7034 was deployed on 2021-03-27 at Barkley Canyon Upper Slope. Upper Slope is a location within Barkley Canyon, which is located on the upper continental slope. 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.
