HOT Physical Oceanography Bottle data
Entry ID: UH_BOTTLE_HOT_1


Summary
Abstract: Scientists working within the Hawaiian Ocean Time-series (HOT)
project, http://hahana.soest.hawaii.edu/, have been
making repeated observations of the hydrography, chemistry and biology
at a station north of Hawaii since October 1988. The objective of this
research is to provide a comprehensive description of the ocean at a
site representative of the central North Pacific Ocean. Cruises are
made approximately once a month to Station ALOHA, the HOT deep-water
station (22 45'N, 158W) located about 100 km north of Oahu,
Hawaii. Measurements of the thermohaline structure, water column
chemistry, currents, primary production and particle sedimentation
rates are made over a 72-hour period on each cruise.

Water samples are collected during HOT cruises
using a 24 place rosette. Samples of salinity, oxygen,phosphate,
nitrate and silicate are regularly taken from both shallow and
deep water casts . Salinity samples are taken back to the University
of Hawaii where they are measured using an Autosal salinometer .
Phosphate, nitrate and silicate samples are also measured at the
University of Hawaii while oxygen measurements are conducted aboard
ship during the cruises. Water sample data from HOT are written according
to the *.sea files specified by the WOCE Hydrographic Programme
Office,for submission of these data to the WHP. One file is written for each
HOT cruise (e.g., hot1.sea contains the data from HOT-1).

The continuous flow of these data depends on funding, and that depends
in part on the credits that we get from the data users. If
you use these data in your project, please contact Dr. Roger Lukas to
avoid possible duplication of efforts. Please consider the
benefits of possible scientific collaborations in the analysis of
these data. If you use our data in your project, we would appreciate your
acknowledgement of the HOT project.The following NSF grant number
should be cited in publications: OCE-9303094. A preprint and reprint
of the publications utilizing HOT data would be appreciated.
