  • This data package contains water chemistry measurements taken monthly at these reefs in the nearshore areas of the Santa Barbra Channel, CA, USA: Arroyo Quemado, Bullito, Naples, Arroyo Burro, Mohawk and Carpinteria. Measurements include standard CTD parameters, nutrients, pigments, particulate CN, total dissolved N and P, stable isotopes of C and N (not all parameters are measured at all stations). Sampling began in November 2000. Some stations are sampled only occasionally. During the first 2 years, CTD data were collected with a SBE19 Seacat Profiler and water samples with a pump. Starting in February 2003, a SBE19-Plus with a rosette sampler was used. There are 3 tables in this dataset. Water chemistry and profiles from "registered stations" (see geographic coverage) are in 2 tables with "registered" in their name. CTD profiles are often collected ad hoc, or as "stations of opportunity". These have been collected in a third table as "non-registered". The station codes for these may be reused, and are not recorded in metadata (but can be found in data).
