This record describes Hydrology (HYD) data collected from the Marine National Facility (MNF) RV Investigator voyage IN2019_T02, titled: "Deep seascapes of the Great Barrier Reef: Uncovering submarine canyons and landslides." The voyage took place between October 4 and October 14, 2019 departing from Brisbane (QLD) and arriving in Darwin (NT).
Hydrology samples were collected from Niskin bottles sampled at various depths during Conductivity-Temperature-Depth (CTD) deployments. Parameters analysed were salinity, dissolved oxygen, phosphate, silicate, nitrate plus nitrite and ammonium.
This dataset has been archived at the CSIRO O&A Information and Data Centre (IDC) in Hobart. Additional information regarding this dataset is contained in the Voyage Report and Data Processing Report.
This data was collected by participants on the Marine National Facility (MNF) RV Investigator voyage IN2019_T02.
The data was processed by Peter Hughes and Jack McDonald (CSIRO O&A).
Data source: original field data.
Nutrient samples were analysed using segmented flow SEAL AA3 and results are in µmol/L. In-house methods SOP 001, SOP 002, SOP 003 and SOP 004 were used to analyse nutrients.
Please cite the following paper when using Hydrochemistry data for silicate, phosphate, nitrate+nitrite (NOx) and nitrite analysis:

Salinities were analysed using Guildline 8400B Autosal Lab Salinometer and OSIL software. The salinometer was calibrated with IAPSO standard seawater P162. In-house method SOP 006 was used to analyse salinity, units are Practical Salinity Unit (PSU).
Dissolved Oxygens were analysed using Scripps UV titrator and software, units measured in ml/L and converted to µmol/L. Dissolved oxygen was analysed using in-house method SOP 005.
All data were processed with HyPro 5.7 on the ship and re-processed on shore with HyPro 5.7.
Nutrient data decimal places within the CSV file; silicate is 1 decimal place, nitrite is 3 decimal places, NOx (nitrate + nitrite), phosphate and ammonium is 2 decimal places. Previously values below detection limit were set to zero these values are now displayed as the measured value even if that is a negative value. Oxygen Data is displayed to 1 decimal place. Salinity data is displayed to 3 decimal places. Data processing notes are in the process report (in2019_t02_HYD_ProcessingReport.pdf).
