EMSO-Iberian Margin Cape St. Vincent observatory data (EMSO Generic Instrument Module (EGIM)) from Jun-Oct 2022.

The EMSO – Iberian Margin Cape St. Vincent mooring (IbMa-CSV) is a submarine observatory, located at the edge of the continental slope, 10 nm south of Cape St. Vincente, the SW tip of the Iberian Peninsula (36.848478 N , -8.927072 E). The observatory is comprised of three instruments. EMSO Generic Instrument Module (EGIM) (200 m) hosts a CT, acoustic-doppler current profiler, dissolved oxygen sensor, water pressure sensor and an optical backscatter sensors. Wave-powered vertical profiler Wirewalker operates from near surface - 150 m depth. It hosts a CTD, dissolved oxygen sensor, fluorometer and optical backscatter sensors.Teledyne RDI Sentinel V100 300 kHz Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) (200 m).

This datasets contains the EMSO Generic Instrument Module (EGIM) observatory data, collected during the EMSO-PT Leg 2 Campaign on the R/V Mário Ruivo from June - October 2022.
