The moorings are 1) the Pulse biogeochemistry mooring (instrumentation was moved to the FluxPulse mooring in 2016, and then to the SOFS mooring); 2) the Sub-Antarctic Zone (SAZ) sediment trap mooring; and 3) the Southern Ocean Flux Station (SOFS) (the instrumentation was briefly moved to the FluxPulse mooring in 2016). All three are operated by the Australian Bluewater Observing System. Data are processed in delayed mode and available in NetCDF format. The Southern Ocean Time Series (SOTS) sub-facility provides high temporal resolution observations in sub-Antarctic waters. Observations are broad and include measurements of physical, chemical and biogeochemical parameters from multiple deep-water moorings. The emphasis is on inter-annual variations of upper ocean properties and their influence on exchange with the deep ocean. The time-series provided permit investigation into issues of ocean physics and chemistry, climate change, carbon cycling and biogeochemical controls on marine productivity. The Pulse biogeochemistry mooring is used to measure upper ocean carbon cycle and phytoplankton productivity processes. Measured parameters include temperature, salinity, dissolved oxygen, nitrate, clorophyll and turbidity. This mooring also collects water samples for measures of dissolved carbon and nutrients, and phytoplankton microscopic identification. The SAZ sediment trap mooring is used to collect sinking particles to quantify carbon transports, and provides current meter measurements and a deep ocean CTD to measure heat contents below the depth of Argo profiling float measurements. The SOFS mooring has dual sets of radiometers, temperature and humidity sensors, precipitation gauges and sonic anemometers, providing the measurements necessary for computing air-sea fluxes of heat, momentum and mass. Surface photosynthetically active radiation and surface UV are also measured, to help assess light available for phytoplankton production.&rft.creator=Integrated Marine Observing System (IMOS) &rft.date=2014&rft.coverage=145,-45 145,-44 146,-44 146,-45&rft.coverage=142,-48 142,-47 140,-47 140,-46 143,-46 143,-48&rft.coverage=141,-52 141,-51 142,-51 142,-52&rft.coverage=141,-54 141,-53 142,-53 142,-54&rft.coverage=139,-61 139,-60 140,-60 140,-61&rft_rights=Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0&rft_subject=oceans&rft_subject=OCEAN CURRENTS&rft_subject=EARTH SCIENCE&rft_subject=OCEANS&rft_subject=OCEAN CIRCULATION&rft_subject=OCEAN WAVES&rft_subject=OCEAN HEAT BUDGET&rft_subject=OCEAN WINDS&rft_subject=OCEAN TEMPERATURE&rft_subject=MARINE BIOLOGY&rft_subject=EARTH SCIENCE SERVICES&rft_subject=ENVIRONMENTAL ADVISORIES&rft_subject=MARINE ADVISORIES&rft_subject=OCEAN CHEMISTRY&rft_subject=Solid Earth | Geochemistry | Biogeochemistry&rft_subject=Global / Oceans | Southern Ocean&rft_subject=Countries | Australia&rft_subject=States, Territories (Australia) | Tasmania&rft_subject=mooring&rft_subject=Upward current velocity in the water body&rft_subject=Wind speed in the atmosphere&rft_subject=Temperature of the water body&rft_subject=Concentration of nitrate {NO3} per unit volume of the water body&rft_subject=Electrical conductivity of the water body&rft_subject=Concentration of oxygen {O2} per unit mass of the water body&rft_subject=Practical salinity of the water body&rft_subject=Pressure (measured variable) in the water body exerted by overlying sea water only&rft_subject=Turbidity of the water body&rft_subject=Downwelling vector irradiance as photons (PAR wavelengths) in the water body&rft_subject=Density of the water body&rft_subject=Concentration of inferred chlorophyll from relative fluorescence per unit volume of the water body&rft_subject=Pressure (measured variable) exerted by the atmosphere&rft_subject=Temperature of the atmosphere&rft_subject=Current direction in the water body&rft_subject=Eastward current velocity in the water body&rft_subject=Eastward wind velocity in the atmosphere&rft_subject=Wind stress on the water body&rft_subject=Concentration of phosphate {PO4} per unit volume of the water body&rft_subject=Concentration of silicate {SiO4} per unit volume of the water body&rft_subject=Northward current velocity in the water body&rft_subject=Northward wind velocity in the atmosphere&rft_subject=Precipitation rate (liquid water equivalent) in the atmosphere&rft_subject=Significant height of waves on the water body&rft_subject=Current speed in the water body&rft_subject=Downwelling vector irradiance as energy (longwave) in the atmosphere&rft_subject=Downwelling vector irradiance as energy (solar (300-3000nm) wavelengths) in the atmosphere&rft_subject=Net longwave heat flux&rft_subject=Net shortwave heat flux&rft_subject=Latent heat flux&rft_subject=Sensible heat flux&rft_subject=Thickness of precipitation amount (liquid water equivalent) in the atmosphere&rft_subject=Relative humidity of the atmosphere&rft_subject=Net heat flux&rft_subject=Net mass flux&rft_subject=Wind to direction in the atmosphere&rft_subject=Average zero crossing period of waves on the water body&rft_subject=Concentration of nitrate and nitrite {NO3 and NO2} per unit volume of the water body&rft_subject=salinity sensor&rft_subject=discrete water samplers&rft_subject=water temperature sensor&rft_subject=nutrient analysers&rft_subject=Conductivity-Temperature sensors&rft_subject=water biogeochemical sensor&rft_subject=optical backscatter sensors&rft_subject=water pressure sensors&rft_subject=meteorological packages&rft_subject=radiometers&rft_subject=anemometers&rft_subject=wave recorders&rft_subject=precipitation gauges&rft_subject=Southern Ocean Time Series Observatory Sub-Facility, Integrated Marine Observing System (IMOS)&rft.type=dataset&rft.language=English Access the data

The moorings are 1) the Pulse biogeochemistry mooring (instrumentation was moved to the FluxPulse mooring in 2016, and then to the SOFS mooring); 2) the Sub-Antarctic Zone (SAZ) sediment trap mooring; and 3) the Southern Ocean Flux Station (SOFS) (the instrumentation was briefly moved to the FluxPulse mooring in 2016). All three are operated by the Australian Bluewater Observing System. Data are processed in delayed mode and available in NetCDF format. The Southern Ocean Time Series (SOTS) sub-facility provides high temporal resolution observations in sub-Antarctic waters. Observations are broad and include measurements of physical, chemical and biogeochemical parameters from multiple deep-water moorings.
