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,
