Discovery Passage Conductivity Temperature Depth Deployed 2020-07-15

The AML CTD Metrec X 50152 was deployed on 2020-07-15 at Discovery Passage. Discovery Passage is a channel that is part of Inside Passage. It is located between Vancouver Island and the Discovery Islands and north of the Georgia Strait. This device is a Conductivity Temperature Depth. Conductivity Temperature Depth (CTD) is an instrument package that contains sensors for measuring the conductivity, temperature, and pressure of seawater. Salinity, sound velocity, depth and density are variables that can be derived from sensor measurements. CTDs can carry additional instruments and sensors such as oxygen sensors, turbidity sensors and fluorometers. It was deployed on a fixed platform. Data from this deployment were archived and made available through Ocean Networks Canada's Oceans 2.0 digital infrastructure, with quality assurance and derived data products following established practices.
