Willapa Bay

CTD Data

Each of the links below are for a specific field trip to Willapa. The data are available as text files for transfer to users. Within each field trip, you may download only the specific stations you want, and ignore the rest. Each station includes 0.5 meter averaged data from the water surface to the bottom of the bay at that location. Data include pressure(db), temperature(ÉC), and, salinity(PSU). All data were taken with a SeaBird CTD instrument. Instrument model and serial number varied.
