Title: National Coral Reef Monitoring Program: Shallow Water Conductivity-Temperature-Depth (CTD) Profiles for select locations across American Samoa in 2015 and 2018
Short Name: NCRMP: CTD American Samoa
Status: On Going
Abstract:

The data described here result from near-shore shallow water Conductivity-Temperature-Depth (CTD) casts conducted at select sites around American Samoa as part of the ongoing National Coral Reef Monitoring Program (NCRMP). These surveys were conducted by the NOAA Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center (PIFSC), Ecosystem Sciences Division (formerly the Coral Reef Ecosystem Division) during ESD-led NCRMP missions to American Samoa in 2015 and 2018. The CTD casts provide vertical profiles (30-m max depth, downcast only) of water column conductivity, temperature, and pressure (Sea-Bird Electronics, SBE19-plus), with calculated depth, salinity, and water density. Data on beam transmission (C-Star transmissometer) and dissolved oxygen (SBE 43 dissolved oxygen sensor) were also collected in 2015.

The CTD was deployed from a small boat using a hand line and held just under the surface for 1 minute to cycle water through the instrument and tubing. Afterward, data were collected by lowering the CTD in profiling mode at an even pace (descent rate ~0.5 to 0.75 meters per second) to a maximum depth of 30 m. Data processing was performed using Sea-Bird Scientific SBE Data Processing Software and the R package "oce".

Purpose:

CTD casts are conducted to characterize the spatial structure of the physical and chemical properties of the ocean environment influencing the living coral reef resources observed during NOAA National Coral Reef Monitoring Program (NCRMP) missions.

Notes:

April 17 2019

CTD data on hold as of 4/12/2019.

Updates to be made once data ready to archive:

1) data fields used now (check entities), Hannah keep necessary fields, with details on what was removed or maintained in email March 21 2019.

2) extents and time frames only added as placeholders, verify against final data

3) Verify that missing data have been added (email 4/4/2019):

- 11 casts (of 82) missing for Samoa 2018

4) Obviously erroneous data removed from the final dataset

5) moored (diel) casts should be excluded (if they aren't ensure they are included in the diel package for that region/year)

Supplemental Information:

The NOAA National Coral Reef Monitoring Program (NCRMP) details a long-term approach to provide an ecosystem perspective via monitoring climate, fish, benthic, and socioeconomic variables in a consistent and integrated manner. The NCRMP coordinates various NOAA Coral Reef Conservation Program (CRCP) biological, physical, and human dimensions activities into a cohesive NOAA-wide effort. Through the implementation of the NCRMP, NOAA is able to clearly and concisely communicate results of national-scale monitoring to national, state, and territorial policy makers, resource managers, and the public on a periodic basis.

NCRMP provides a framework for conducting sustained observations of biological, climate, and socioeconomic indicators at 10 priority coral reefs across the U.S. and its territories. This integrated approach consolidates monitoring of coral reefs under a uniform method in the Pacific, Atlantic, Caribbean, and the Gulf of Mexico for the first time. NCRMP is funded by the CRCP and supported by NOAA Fisheries, NOAA National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS), NOAA's Atlantic Oceanographic & Meteorological Laboratory (AOML), NOAA Coral Reef Watch, and many other partners.

The Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center (PIFSC), Ecosystem Sciences Division (ESD) at NOAA Fisheries is leading in-situ climate monitoring in the U.S. Pacific Islands Region as part of the ongoing Pacific Reef Assessment and Monitoring Program (RAMP). The climate component of NCRMP in the Pacific provides a comprehensive view of climate change impacts on coral reef ecosystems and helps identify areas of resilience and vulnerability. The key indicators used to identify and monitor climate-driven trends include 1) thermal stress caused by changes in sea temperature, 2) ocean acidification resulting from changes in carbonate chemistry, and 3) ecological impacts by collecting data on coral growth rates, erosion, and community structure to understand the impacts of thermal stress and ocean acidification on the ecosystem. Each year, ESD scientists work closely with CRCP and partners during Pacific RAMP missions to collect data using moored oceanographic (subsurface temperature recorders) and ecological (calcification accretion units [CAUs] and autonomous reef monitoring structures [ARMS]) instruments stationed at fixed sites in the Pacific Ocean, and water samples collected by divers. The in-situ data and satellite-based observations are also used in modeling efforts. Innovative analysis techniques are used to develop products that give fellow scientists, managers, decision makers and the public a better understanding of a region's resources and how they are changing over time.

CREP welcomes the opportunity to collaborate on research issues contributing to the scientific basis for better management of marine ecosystems. CREP has a very diverse set of field activities that generates large volumes of data using an array of data collection protocols.

The following recommendations are for your consideration as you use this data:

1) Data analyses should take all field exigencies into account. The most effective way to do this would be active collaboration with CREP principal investigators.

2) In all presentations, product releases, or publications using data generated by CREP, proper acknowledgement of both CREP and the individuals responsible for data collection is expected. Citing the DOI (if available) is preferred, a non-DOI example is listed below.

3) If you collect or generate data for the same study areas, CREP requests that you share relevant information on complimentary data collections.

4) Those receiving data are strongly urged to inform the CREP Data Management Team of any errors and discrepancies that are discovered during the course of using these data. They are further urged to bring to the attention of the Team all problems and difficulties encountered in using these data. This information is necessary in order to improve the collections and to facilitate more efficient and economical data processing and retrieval. The users are asked to supply copies of any missing data that may be located, and to provide information as to significant subsets and special aggregations of data that are developed in using the material provided.

Technical Environment

Description:

Raw data are downloaded from the instruments on the cruise as .HEX files, processed using Sea-Bird Scientific SBE Data Processing Software and the R package "oce", and saved as .CNV and .CSV files. The processed files are merged, imported into an MS Access database (CTDDBv2.accdb), and integrated with the associated water samples. Data are extracted from the database using the query zqry_NCRMP_DataCTDShallow and distributed to the NOAA ocean data archive by region and year.

Data Quality

Accuracy:

SBE-19plus CTD sensor:

Conductivity - measurement range: 0-9 S/m; accuracy: +/- 0.0005 S/m; stability: 0.0003 S/m per month; resolution: 0.00005 S/m;

Temperature - measurement range: -5-35 deg C; accuracy: +/-0.005 deg C; stability: 0.0002 deg C per month; resolution: 0.0001 deg C;

Pressure - measurement range: 0-600 m; accuracy: +/- 0.1%; stability: +/- 0.1%; resolution: 0.002%

Completeness Report:

Obviously erroneous data have been removed from the final dataset. For 2015 observations, -9.99E-29 or -1E-28 values in the data, where they exist, indicate that observation/analysis was not conducted for the sample record where it appears.

Conceptual Consistency:

The same methods of data collection are used each time a CTD cast is conducted. Conductivity, temperature, pressure, depth, salinity, and density are routinely included in the observation dataset. Beam transmission and dissolved oxygen were only collected in 2015.

Quality Control Procedures Employed:

The data is quality controlled by NOAA PIFSC Ecosystem Sciences Division (ESD) personnel after the data is downloaded from the instruments, prior to and after the data are migrated to MS Access, and once again when the data are submitted to the NOAA National Centers for Environmental Information.
