Abstract

Two quality controlled datasets here archived were collected during the oceanographic cruise BioArgoMed that held in Spring 2015 over the whole Mediterranean Sea, onboard R/V Tethys 2. The first datset is composed of continuous vertical profiles of the 14 downcasts performed during the seven stations. The profiles have a resolution of 1dbar. The quality controlled parameters reported in this data set are: pressure (PRES in dbar), in-situ temperature (TEMP in °C), practical salinity (PSAL), dissolved oxygen concentration (OXYGEN in µmol/kg), fluorescence of chlorophyll-a (FCHL in mg/m3), amplitude of zonal current (UVEL in m/s), amplitude of the meridional current (VVEL in m/s), amplitude of error velocity (UERR in m/s). The second dataset is composed of discrete samples collected during the 14 upcasts performed during the seven stations. The quality controlled parameters are: pressure (CTD_PRES in dbar), in-situ temperature (CTD_TEMP in °C), practical salinity (CTD_PSAL), potential density anomaly referenced at surface (CTD_DENS in kg/m3), dissolved oxygen concentration measured by the electrochemical sensor (CTD_OXY in µmol/kg), fluorescence of chlorophyll-a (CTD_FCHL in mg/m3), dissolved oxygen concentration measured by the Winkler method (OXYGEN in µmol/kg), concentration of silicate (SILICAT in µmol/L), concentration of phosphate (PHSPHT in µmol/L) , concentration of nitrite (NITRIT in µmol/L), concentration of nitrate (NITRAT in µmol/L), concentration of pigments (processed by HPLC).

The two datasets were collected in concomitancy with the deployment of BGC-Argo floats (WMO numbers : 6901764, 6901765, 6901766, 6901767, 6901768, 6901769, 6901771, 6901773).
