To measure methane and carbon dioxide in the air and water of the Arctic Ocean.
Information to be Derived
Time series data;Samples and chemical analysis;Laboratory sensor data;
Methane and carbon dioxide in air (3 elevations above the ocean: 16 or 35 feet, 
50 feet, and 109 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 sonde.
Data Types:
Geochemical data, Location/Navigation, Notes/Logs, Oceanographic measurements, 
Photographs, Samples/Cores,
Cavity Ring Down Spectrometer (CRDS) equipment was used for measuring methane 
and carbon dioxide. Additionally, collected weather data and water samples.
