Conductivity, temperature, and salinity data for the Miami Pockmark and Key Biscayne Pockmark

Conductivity, temperature, and salinity data were collected from two offshore submarine pockmarks, Miami Pockmark and Key Biscayne Pockmark. A series of dives were performed to gather conductivity, temperature, and salinity data using an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) with a Conductivity, Temperature and Depth (CDT) instrument. These data were collected between May 5-8,

Methane, nitrogen, oxygen, and carbon dioxide data for the Miami Pockmark and Key Biscayne Pockmark

Methane, nitrogen, oxygen, and carbon dioxide concentrations were collected at two offshore submarine pockmarks, Miami Pockmark and Key Biscayne Pockmark. A series of dives were performed to gather the data using an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) with an Underwater Mass Spectrometer (UMS) instrument. The data were collected May 5-8, 2016 using a Bluefin B12 AUV equipped wit

Daily reference and potential evapotranspiration, and supporting meteorological, solar insolation, and blue-sky albedo, Florida, 2019

Potential evapotranspiration (PET), and reference evapotranspiration (ETo) are estimated at an approximately 2-kilometer spatial grid and daily time-scale from January 1, 2019 to December 31, 2019 for the entire State of Florida. PET and ETo were computed on the basis of solar radiation, and meteorological data (min/max temperature, min/max relative humidity, and mean wi
