The data set consists of individual vertical profiles of hydrographic data collected at marine sampling sites off Stonehaven on the east coast of Scotland. The data were collected with a Saiv CTD system with additional sensors in the form of a chlorophyll fluorometer and a turbidity sensor. Calibration was carried out by reference to independent water samples and thermometer readings. Parameters measured were depth, temperature, salinity, chlorophyll (mg/m3) and turbidity (Formazine Turbidity Units). The data were gathered at a set of fixed locations around a central location of 57N, 2W. The data from each site are held in csv text files easily loaded into excel or read by any other data handling package.
