Brief description

The research vessels (RV Cape Ferguson and RV Solander) of the Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS) routinely record along-track (underway) measurements of near-surface water temperature, salinity, chlorophyll fluorescence, and turbidity during scientific operations in the tropical waters of northern Australia. All data records include sampling time (UTC), position (latitude and longitude) and water depth (under keel). \n \n Data are recorded at 10 second intervals. Data are measured with a Seabird SBE38 thermometer, Seabird SBE21 thermosalinograph and Wetlabs ECO-FLNTU-RT (optical sensor for chlorophyll fluorescence and turbidity). The turbidity data (NTU) are currently regarded as provisional in the absence of local validation due to intermittent bubble contamination. The sampling intakes are located at depths of 1.9m (RV Cape Ferguson) and 2.5m (RV Solander).\n The data is used to inform spatial patchiness of these variables and for ongoing validation of satellite ocean temperature and ocean colour products.\n Sensors on Tropical Research Vessels is a sub-facility of the IMOS Facility Ships of Opportunity (SOOP): http://imos.org.au/facilities/shipsofopportunity.\n The quality-controlled, near real time RV Cape Ferguson and RV Solander underway data are supplied to the IMOS Australian Ocean Data Network Portal (https://portal.aodn.org.au/).\n Data are available through the AODN THREDDS Server (http://thredds.aodn.org.au/thredds/catalog/IMOS/SOOP/SOOP-TRV/catalog.html).\n The near real time ocean temperature and salinity data are separately quality controlled by the Australian Bureau of Meteorology and uploaded onto the Global Telecommunication System (GTS) for global dissemination to be used in real time sea surface temperature analyses.\n
