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

November 10, 2020

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, 2016 using a Bluefin B12 AUV equipped with a CDT and an onboard calibrated Kearfott T-24 Inertial Navigation System (INS) aided by a GPS Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS), 600 kHz RDI Doppler Velocity Log (DVL) and a Valeport sound velocity meter. The conductivity, temperature, and salinity data collected from Miami Pockmark and Key Biscayne Pockmark are displayed in figures 1-6.
