Deep sediment trap (3200m) mooring data collected during multiple marine cruise in the Southern Ocean south-west of South Georgia from April 2007 onwards


A Deep sediment trap (3200m) mooring has been deployed in the Southern Ocean, south-west of South Georgia during multiple marine cruises from April 2007 onwards as part of a long-term monitoring and assessment of the status of the marine ecosystems in the region of South Georgia. Measurements were made for sustained observations of zooplankton densities, carbon export and effects of ocean acidification. Standard datasets include profiles from a Conductivity-Temperature-Depth (CTD) analyser and Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP). In addition, data from a deep and shallow sediment trap, current meter, O2 sensor, CO2 sensor and pH sensors were collected.
