To measure methane and carbon dioxide in the air and water of the Arctic Ocean.
Information to be Derived
Samples and chemical analysis;Laboratory sensor data;Physical property data;
Methane and carbon dioxide in air (3 elevations above the ocean: 35 feet, 50 
feet, and 105 feet) and surface water were measured during transits, transects, 
and while on CTD / mooring station in the Arctic Ocean. Additionally samples 
were collected vertically from CTD casts and analyzed for methane. Atmospheric 
measurements (wind speed, direction, temperature) were made by 3 AirMars mounted 
at 3 different elevations above the ocean. Temperature, conductivity, dissolved 
oxygen, salinity, pH, and ORP measurements were made by a YSI water parameter 
Data Types:
Geochemical data, Location/Navigation, Notes/Logs, Oceanographic measurements, 
Photographs, Resistivity data, Samples/Cores,
Cavity Ring Down Spectrometer (CRDS) equipment will be used for measuring 
methane and carbon dioxide. Additionally we will collect weather data and water
