Layer: Water Column Stratification - Long-Term Average, Winter (ID: 8)

Name: Water Column Stratification - Long-Term Average, Winter

Display Field:

Type: Raster Layer

Geometry Type: null

Description: Seasonal averages of water column stratification were calculated for the period 1980-2007. Data were obtained from The Nature Conservancy and Dr. Grant Law. Data were processed and mapped by NOAA NCCOS. Briefly, three-dimensional ocean temperature and salinity were interpolated from conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) casts. CTD cast data were obtained from a combination of Hydrobase, NOAA National Marine Fisheries Service, Fisheries and Ocean Canada, and South-Atlantic Bight oceanographic databases. Stratification was calculated by subtracting seawater density at 50 meters depth from surface seawater density. The resultant values were then averaged to generate a 1980-2007 climatology. For more details about data processing, please see the NOAA NCCOS report prepared for the NY Department of State's Offshore Atlantic Ocean Study.
