Dataset consists of profile and water column burst Data collected as part of a longitudinal profiler station survey at approximately 20 km, 25 km, 35 km, 45 km, 56 km and 62 km upriver from the mouth of the York River Estuary.


During each station in the survey a profile or bottom time series was collected with a suite of instrumentation, including: a YSI 6600 CTD, a Sequoia LISST 100X, RDI 1200 kHz ADCP and a Sontek ADVOcean. The raw Data of profile stations are processed to provide a smooth profile of Data throughout the water column and a series of between 2 to 5 minute bursts from various heights in the water column. Bottom bursts are time series collected when the profiler was resting on the seafloor. Total Suspended Solids (and fixed solids) were sampled from depth to calibrate the acoustic backscatter.|The "logbook" is the hand written field notes and instrument setup documents. The "Profiler Set up" is a log of the location and serial number of the instruments mounted on the profiler. The "Consecutive Station Log" is an excel spreadsheet of the metaData associated with each station in the survey. Excel spreadsheet "Averaged Data" contains burst averaged Data and statistics from the water column and bottom bursts. Raw and processed Data from each instrument are zipped in a folder, or series of folders, identified by the type and serial number of the instrument. All times are Eastern Standard Time (EST).
