Title

CTD, ADCP, meteorological, and flow-through instrumental data collected onboard the R/V Weatherbird II cruise WB0517 in the northwestern margin of Cuba from 2017-05-09 to 2017-05-25

Abstract

This dataset contains the CTD, ADCP, meteorological, and flow-through instrumental data collected during an expedition of the R/V Weatherbird II cruise WB0517 to the northwestern margin of Cuba from 2017-05-09 to 2017-05-25. The dataset includes conductivity, temperature, salinity, fluorescence, turbidity, photosynthetically available radiation (PAR), sound velocity, density, air pressure, wind speed, wind direction, location, and depth parameters. The CTD data were collected at 22 CTD stations. The R/V Weatherbird II cruise WB0517 was led by chief scientist Dr. Steven A. Murawski.
