Here is a map of our survey (blue line) and station locations (red square and green circle) with three-dimensional plots of four variables measured with the Scanfish. This instrument is towed behind the ship and undulates from 2 meters off the bottom to 2 meters from the surface, taking measurements of temperature, salinity, fluorescence, and dissolved oxygen 24 times each second (!). For these graphs I’ve processed the data and averaged it over 0.5 km and 1 m depth.
