Abstract:

During October 9 22, 2010, NRL conducted a field experiment in Monterey Bay, California. Personnel from the NRL Ocean Sciences Code 7330 and Coastal and Ocean Sensing Code 7230 Branches, and the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute MBARI were aboard the UNOLS Research Vessel Pt. Sur. During the same time period, additional Code 7230 personnel performed a series of flights over the Bay aboard an airplane equipped with hyperspectral remote sensing instruments. This document contains a description of the NRL activities, sampling instrumentation, methods, and data processing. Plots of the monthly timeseries data are followed by plots from each day of October 2010 organized by hydrocast number and brief notes on the environment from cruise and flight logs. This is not a complete set of all data products collected or derived and is intended only to provide an overview and serve as a basis for further investigation. The plots presented in the document are not necessarily final versions additional quality control andor processing steps may be found necessary.
