Location of the ship is recorded using a standard GPS (Global Positioning System). The accuracy of measurements of latitude, longitude are within 4-10m using WGS-84, and a standard 2D depth sounder measures bathymetric depth under the hull. A real time clock in the SBE 21 is manually set and is supported by an internal lithium back-up battery when the power supply is off. SBE 21 records the output of a remote 'secondary' temperature sensor (SBE 38) at the seawater intake in the sea chest, allowing for the measurement of sea surface temperature with minimum thermal contamination from the ship's hull. The 'primary' temperature is recorded in the SBE 21 deck unit. SBE 21 supports auxiliary A/D sensors; the WET Labs FLNTU-RT, which measures chlorophyll-a fluorescence and turbidity. This output is included in the SBE 21 data stream. The SBE 21 cleaning procedures are as per Section 7 of http://www.seabird.com/pdf_documents/manuals/21_026.pdf and http://www.seabird.com/application_notes/AN02d.htm. Additionally the optical face of the FLNTU-RT is manually cleaned daily when possible, and periodic freshwater flushing of the deck unit occurs during cruises. SBE 21 AF24173 Anti-Foulant Devices are also installed. \n Statement: Seabird SBE 21 thermosalinograph output format is raw hexadecimal data at either 5 or 10 second time intervals. The SBE Data Processing program is used to convert data from conductivity, remote 'secondary' temperature and auxiliary sensors, as well as GPS location, bathymetric depth and time into ASCII format. It also calculates the derived variable salinity, using data from the 'primary' SBE 21 temperature sensor. The program accesses a configuration file containing factory calibration variables for each sensor. Calibrated data are imported into a central database. An automated quality control process is applied to the data and each data point is flagged accordingly. A history of the data quality control rules applied to the data is available for each data point.\n&rft.creator=Integrated Marine Observing System (IMOS) &rft.date=2021&rft.coverage=northlimit=-8.0; southlimit=-29.0; westlimit=112.0; eastLimit=138.0; projection=GDA94&rft.coverage=northlimit=-8.0; southlimit=-29.0; westlimit=112.0; eastLimit=138.0; projection=GDA94&rft_rights=Use Limitation: All AIMS data, products and services are provided as is and AIMS does not warrant their fitness for a particular purpose or non-infringement.
