  • FORTH for NOAA/MLML Instruments

    Reaves, Richard, E.; Broenkow, William W. (Moss Landing Marine LaboratoriesMoss Landing, CA, 1993)
    This report describes FORTH software written for several instruments used in the NASA-sponsored project to design and build Marine Optical Buoy System (MOBS) and in the NOAA-sponsored project "EOS MODIS Execution: Oceanographic Profiling, Data Acquisition and Management for the Marine Optical Buoy System·'. In the NOAA project MLML and NOAA personnel will participate in quarterly cruises at the MOBS Hawaiian site to validate performance of SeaWiFS and will participate in several extended "process" cruises to provide wide geographic surface truthing investigations similar to those lead by Dennis Clark (NOAA) following the "launch of CZCS in 1979. In the NASA project we are designing and building MOBS, a high resolution spectroradiometer that will operate autonomously in a buoy moored west of Lanai in the Hawaiian Islands. That instrument, the "Marine Optical System" (MOS), will transmit by cellular phone in near real time observations of upwelled radiance and downwelled irradiance from three depths.

  • Introduction to MLML_DBASE Programs

    Broenkow, William W.; Reaves, Richard E. (Moss Landing Marine LaboratoriesMoss Landing, CA, 1993)
    The MLML DBASE family of programs described here provides many of the. algorithms used in oceanographic data reduction, general data manipulation and line graphs. These programs provide a consistent file structure for serial data typically encountered in oceanography. This introduction should provide enough general knowledge to explain the scope of the program and to run the basic MLML_DBASE programs. It is notintended as a programmer's guide.

  • Oceanographic results during VERTEX particle interceptor trap experiment 17 August to 8 September 1980

    Broenkow, William W.; Greene, Nancy, T. (Moss Landing Marine LaboratoriesMoss Landing, CA, 1981)
    This report presents oceanographic data supporting the detailed chemical studies in the VERTEX Particle Interceptor Trap (PIT) experiment off the central California coast. Prior to the deployment of the PITs, an oceanographic survey of the intended study area was made on R/V CAYUSE from 17 to 21 August 1980. During this cruise, twenty CTD stations (Fig. 1) were occupied in a grid centered about the PIT site selected earlier based on archival oceanographic data. During the second leg of the VERTEX experiment from 25 August to 3 September, CTO profiles were taken as time permitted. In addition, a short survey near the PITs was made on 2 September.The intent of the pre-deployment cruise was to obtain data characterizing the vertical and horizontal variability of physical and chemical properties and to map the geostrophic flow field. Toward this end, vertical profiles of salinity,temperature and dissolved oxygen were made using a Plessey 9040 CTOa profiler. Considerable effort was expended to make vertical beam attenuation profiles to
  • California Cooperative Fisheries Investigations. Hydrographic data report, Monterey Bay, January to December 1977

    Chinburg, Susan J.; Lasley, Stephen R. (Moss Landing Marine LaboratoriesMoss Landing, CA, 1977)
    The data contained in this report were obtained as a continuance of the nearly bi-weekly hydrographic observations initiated by personnel at Hopkins Marine Station over two decades ago. These observations have been supported through the years by the State of California Marine Research Committee, California Cooperative Oceanic Fisheries Investigations. Since July 1974, the hydrographic sampling program has been carried out by the investigators at Moss Landing Marine Laboratories. From July 1974 to June 1976, this work was done in conjunction with an interdisciplinary study of the squid, Loligo opalescens, supported by the National Office of Sea Grant 'via the University of California Sea Grant College Project Number R/F-15. Five of the original CalCOFI stations (2201, 2202, 2203, 2204 and 2205) have been-retained in our sampling routine and additional inner-bay stations have been added (1154 and 1121) Sampling was conducted on a monthly basis for the entire year. All observations were made ab9ard R/V OCONOSTOTA. (PDF contains 93 pages)
  • California Cooperative Fisheries Investigations. Hydrographic data report. Monterey Bay. July to December, 1974

    Broenkow, William W.; Lasley, Stephen R.; Schrader, George C. (Moss Landing Marine LaboratoriesMoss Landing, CA, 1975)
    In July 1974 Moss Landing Marine Laboratories began the continuationof the bi-weekly hydrographic observations in Monterey Bay.From 1951 to this date, these stations were sampled by personnel at Hopkins Marine Station in Pacific Grove.Small changes were made in the sampling routine: 1) to facilitate squid (Loligo opa1escens) studies, our observations were made at night, and 2) stations 1125 and 1154 are sampled in addition to five stations originally used by Hopkins Marine Station (2201, 2202, 2203, 2204, and 2205). These additional stations will provide importantdata of the nearshore environment. PDF contains 86 pages)
  • The results of an exploratory fishery cruise for Loligo Opalescens in southern and central California, June 5-25, 1974

    Ally, Raymond J.R.; Evans, Ronald G.; Thompson, Thomas W. (Moss Landing Marine LaboratoriesMoss Landing, CA, 1975)
    During June 1974 the California Department of Fish and Game, in cooperation with the Sea Grant program at Moss Landing Marine Laboratories, conducted an exploratory fishing cruise that extended from La Jolla to SantaCruz and included the Channel Islands, concentrating on inshore waters. The cruise was preliminary to the initiation of a major program of squid research and had six objectives:1) To gather samples of market squid (Lo1igo opa1escens) for population,growth, aging and food chain studies.2) To locate potential new fishing grounds.3) To investigate methods for determining spawning intensity.4) To gather data on oceanographic parameters of the spawning grounds.5) To make incidental collections as requested by other investigators.6) To familiarize Sea Grant personnel with the capabilities of the Department's largest research vessel, ALASKA, with respect to squid.Especially good weather and oceanographic conditions persisting throughout the cruise enabled us to make 66 night1ight stations, 17 midwater trawls and eight bottom trawls. Fishable concentrations of squid were discovered in the areas between Cape San Martin and Partington Point,between Pfeiffer Point and Point Sur, and in Carmel Bay, heretofore unfished. Squid spawning off Santa Cruz Island was observed utilizing an underwater observation chamber aboard the vessel. Mating and feeding behavior wereobserved in shipboard aquaria. PDF contains 28 pages)
