Dataset: Physical Oceanography of Karmt Shoals, Timor Sea (2004): Karmt 100 Mooring


Description

A current meter, a tide gauge and 3 temperature and pressure recorders were attached to the Karmt 100 mooring for the first deployment. The tide gauge was replaced by a temperature and pressure recorder for the second deployment. \n \nDeployment 1: \nDate Deployed: 22/01/2004 \nDate Recovered: 01/04/2004 \n \nInstruments Deployed on Mooring: \nDepth: 10m; Instrument: RBR Tide Gauge; Serial #: 10079; Sensors: Pressure \nDepth: 20m; Instrument: SBE39; Serial #: 0934; Sensors: Temperature \nDepth: 30m; Instrument: SBE39; Serial #: 0935; Sensors: Temperature \nDepth: 50m; Instrument: SBE39; Serial #: 0929; Sensors: Temperature \nDepth: 93m; Instrument: RDI Workhorse 300kHz ADCP; Serial #: 1947; Sensors: Velocity profile, temperature \n \nDeployment 2: \nDate Deployed: 02/04/2004 \nDate Recovered: 04/12/2004 \n \nInstruments Deployed on Mooring: \nDepth: 10m; Instrument: SBE39; Serial #: 0760; Sensors: Temperature, pressure \nDepth: 20m; Instrument: SBE39; Serial #: 0934; Sensors: Temperature \nDepth: 30m; Instrument: SBE39; Serial #: 0935; Sensors: Temperature \nDepth: 50m; Instrument: SBE39; Serial #: 0929; Sensors: Temperature \nDepth: 93m; Instrument: RDI Workhorse 300kHz ADCP; Serial #: 1947; Sensors: Velocity profile, temperature\n This study was undertaken to investigate the distribution of shelf edge upwelling phenomena, a potentially significant attribute of the Oceanic Shoals bioregion.\n This study was a component of the project "Biodiversity and the factors controlling it, for selected habitats in the Timor Sea region", which seeks to integrate data from biodiversity surveys, chemistry, oceanography and geology to understand the processes that sustain the biota of the region.\n
