Abstract

From May-July 2019, a large array of equipment was deployed in western Lake Superior to study a process called Radiatively Driven Convection (RDC). This occurs when solar radiation is incident on fresh water whose temperature is below the temperature of maximum density, heating and densifying surface waters, driving convection. The goal of the project was to characterize the spatial and temporal scales of this convective process.

Description

The primary datasets included here are 1. temperature data from a large number of precision thermistors 2. current and backscatter data from an acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP). 3. Meteorological data from a surface meteorology buoy 4. Conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) casts from three cruises associated with the deployment
