Quality
See Readme file and calibration document ... SeaBird MicroCAT CTD units placed at three depths in the 360 m deep ocean cavity beneath the ice shelf (20 m below ice-water interface, mid cavity, and 40 m up from sea bed) ... ongoing recording until batteries fail, expected lifetime is 3 years ... problem with failures in the pressure housings, but salinity and temperature data ok.
