  • SBCLTER: Ocean: Currents and Biogeochemistry: Moored CTD and ADCP Data at Arroyo Quemado Reef (ARQ), ongoing since 2004
  • Santa Barbara Coastal LTER
  • Washburn, Libe
  • 2015
  • ADCP (Currents), CTD (Hydrography) and Optics data (Fluorescence, Beam Attenuation and Volume Scattering Function) were collected at Arroyo Quemado Reef in the Santa Barbara Channel (site ID: ARQ). Data have been interpolated to a 20 minute interval. ADCP data are binned at a 1.0 meter interval, measured as height from the bottom to a maximum of 16 bins. All bins may not be filled, and in some cases, data from bins technically above the surface are included. VSF data are available at angles, 100, 125 and 150 degrees. CTD parameters include Pressure, Temperature, Conductivity, Salinity, Density and Fluorescence. The CTD array is located approximately 4.5 meters from the surface, and there are additional temperature thermistors near the CTD array, at the bottom, and mid way between these two.
