Abstract:

This dataset contains MOCNESS (Multiple Opening/Closing Net Environmental Sensing System) profile data collected on board the R/V F.G. Walton Smith during Natural Resource Damage Assessment (NRDA) Plankton Survey Walton Smith 1 (WS1) in the Gulf of Mexico from 2010-09-08 to 2010-09-16. This survey (WS1, chief scientist: Malinda Sutor) was part of a series of NRDA cruises conducted in 2010 and 2011 to evaluate the distribution and densities of ichthyoplankton and other zooplankton in northern Gulf of Mexico waters potentially affected by the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill (DWHOS). The dataset includes the original profile data in three formats (.RAW, .TAB, .PRO) for individual MOCNESS tows, as well as combined and summary data (all tows) for the full cruise. Datasets include sampling event data (e.g., time, latitude, longitude, salinity, temperature, depth, fluorescence, velocity, and volume filtered). This dataset corresponds with the MOCNESS Ichthyoplankton dataset available under GRIIDC Unique Dataset Identifier (UDI) R6.x815.000:0007 (DOI: 10.7266/n7-30jw-aq82).

Purpose:

This data was collected as part of the Natural Resource Damage Assessment (NRDA) of the MC252 Deepwater Horizon 2010 oil spill.
