Baseline oceanographic data from Dease Strait and western Queen Maud Gulf

During the cruise aboard R/V Martin Bergmann, conductivity, temperature, and depth (CTD) measurements were performed at 26 stations, water samples were collected at 16 stations, box cores in triplicate were collected from 8 separate stations (24 in total), and surface water pCO2 measurements were performed at 9 stations. Additionally, acoustic receiver moorings were deployed at an array of sites as part of an Ocean Tracking Network (, with the purpose of investigating the migration of arctic char in the region. Water samples are currently being analyzed for: salinity, oxygen-18, nutrient concentration, total suspended solids, dissolved organic carbon, particulate organic carbon and nitrogen, pigment and mycosporine-like amino acid concentrations, particulate spectral absorption, coloured dissolved organic matter, flow cytometry, and algal taxonomy (via visible microscopy).
