Brief description

This dataset contains the traditional and effective nitrate, phosphate, and silicate fluxes in Lombok, Ombai, and Timor passages, Indian Ocean. Fluxes are depth-resolved and cross-strait integrated, for the 2004-2006 time period of the INSTANT field program. In some cases depths extend below the functional sill depths, due to the moorings being in deeper water. Negative fluxes are westward, towards the Indian Ocean.

Files are in self-describing netCDF format, as follows: (1) lombok_trad.nc. Traditional nutrient fluxes for Lombok Strait. (2) lombok_eff.nc. Effective nutrient fluxes for Lombok Strait. (3) ombai_trad.nc. Traditional nutrient fluxes for Ombai Strait. (4) ombai_eff.nc. Effective nutrient fluxes for Ombai Strait. (5) timor_trad.nc. Traditional nutrient fluxes for Timor Passage. (6) timor_eff.nc. Effective nutrient fluxes for Timor Passage.

Lineage

The data are cross-strait integrated between the two points [lat,lon]:
(1) Lombok Strait, from [-8.3460, 116.0251] to [-8.4021, 115.7102]
(2) Ombai Strait, from [-8.6640, 125.1099] to [-8.3514, 125.0723]
(2) Timor Passage, from [-12.2250, 123.0080] to [-10.8198, 122.6824]

Depths:
(1) lombok_trad.nc and lombok_eff.nc: 0-300m
(2) ombai_trad.nc and ombai_eff.nc: 0-1250m
(3) timor_trad.nc and timor_eff.nc: 0-1890m

Nutrient flux data were calculated from INSTANT mooring velocities in conjunction with CARS 2009 nutrient data. Please refer to Ayers et al for details.
