Abstract:

This dataset contains MOCNESS (Multiple Opening/Closing Net Environmental Sensing System) profile data collected on board the M/V Nick Skansi during Natural Resource Damage Assessment (NRDA) Plankton Survey Nick Skansi PC3 (NSPC3) in the Gulf of Mexico from 2010-09-25 to 2010-10-03. This survey (NSPC3, chief scientist: Tara Bardi) 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. The dataset includes profile data collected (e.g. time, longitude, latitude, salinity, temperature, depth, fluorescence, velocity, and volume). This dataset corresponds with the MOCNESS Ichthyoplankton dataset available under GRIIDC Unique Dataset Identifier (UDI) R6.x815.000:0025 (DOI: 10.7266/n7-7fxg-2980).

Purpose:

This data was collected as part of the Natural Resource Damage Assessment (NRDA) response to the 2010 MC252 Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Taxonomic data were acquired from the Deepwater Horizon Plankton Assessment Archive (DWHPAA).

Note: Sample time in xxxx.PRO files are UTC, and in xxxx_all.csv file is Central time. For the detailed dataset information including file descriptions, file naming conventions, and all the headers descriptions, please refer to the Readme file (MOCNESS READ ME FILE_NSPC3.xlsx) included in the dataset.|MOCNESS data (RAW, PRO, and TAB files) were acquired from the Deepwater Horizon Plankton Assessment Archive (DWHPAA) and NCEI, and are provided here in their original form for reference. MOC All and MOC summary files were generated by the dataset authors to collate and summarize the MOCNESS environmental data after additional processing and QC. The MOC Deployment ID file is included for organizational reference and does not contain environmental data. The dataset authors are curating the deep-pelagic plankton data and associated environmental data for analysis, and were not part of the sample collection effort. MOCNESS data (RAW, PRO, and TAB files) are organized by station number, time of day, sampling depth, and sampling occurrence (i.e., repeat tows at the same station, numbered 1-4 when applicable).
          
          
Unprocessed data generated from the underwater unit attached to the MOCNESS instrument frame. File contains no defined columns or headings. RAW files are original data output from the MOCNESS software; one RAW file per tow. Processed version of the RAW data file, presented in an ASCII to Disk format. Data represent environmental samples (e.g., temperature, salinity, latitude, longitude) recorded in 4-second intervals throughout the MOCNESS deployment. PRO files are original data output from the MOCNESS software; one PRO file per tow. Summary data for each net from PRO file data. Minimum, maximum, and mean values are provided for each environmental parameter. TAB files are original data output from the MOCNESS software; one TAB file per tow. Tow identifiers (Deployment ID), corresponding file names for MOCNESS data (RAW, PRO, and TAB; see below for file naming convention), and station coordinates. One 'MOC Deployment ID' file per cruise. Data from all PRO files combined (per cruise), with each environmental sample (one sample recorded per 4-second interval) paired with corresponding cruise data (e.g., Deployment ID, Field Sample ID, Station ID, time of day). See below for details on further processing/QC of PRO data before combining into 'MOC All' file. One 'MOC All' file per cruise. Summary data for each net from 'MOC All' file. Net opening, net closing, and/or mean and standard deviation are provided for each environmental parameter. One 'MOC Summary' file per cruise.|1-m^2 Multiple Opening/Closing Net Environmental Sensing System (MOCNESS) outfitted with 9 .333mm nets.|||Data provided in this dataset are generated from the Natural Resource Damage Assessment Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill Plankton Processing Plan. Stations sampled are on the Southeast Area Monitoring and Assessment Program (SEAMAP) Gulf of Mexico grid.
