Processing Notes:

  • data converted using appropriate SBE configuration file
  • visually checked for obvious anomalies and overall quality of dataset
  • imported into Excel, tips and tails removed, missing and out of water data (w/in dataset) replaced with 99, created file for each year
  • all other data left as is
  • raw seabird .cnv file for each collection period made available with .xls file

General Note:

Fluorescence data subject to the effects of photoquenching. This is reflected by daily oscillations in the data (values will be higher at night) and is due to a reduced IVF (in vivo fluorescence) yield. This is caused by an abundance of light and more photosynthetic activity. For more information on this topic, see "Fluorometry For Biological Sensing" by Jim Aiken, Plymouth Marin Laboratory, UK.

Note: Data dates/times are UTC (PST -8/PDT -7).
