The data described here were collected on LTER06 which took place from 2003-02-25 to 2003-03-06 on the RV Pt. Sur. Cruises have been conducted in the Santa Barbara Channel, California, USA, 3-4 times per year since March, 2001 and are approximately 7 days in length.

There are 2 basic types of measurements:

Underway measurements: fluorometry, salinity and temperature are collected at a depth of 3m with a flow-through system which also includes continuous atmospheric climate measurements.

Underway acoustic dopler current profiles were collected using a NB 150kHz ADCP.
