CCS - MV Bluefin 2017 V01 CTD
Project Overview: A range of solutions will be required to reach globally agreed emissions reductions targets for carbon dioxide (CO2). Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is part of the suite of technologies that will contribute to lowering atmospheric emissions of CO2 from Australia's energy system. There are a wide variety of technologies at vario... moreus stages of technical and commercial readiness, with more development underway for cost effective CO2 capture and storage. Our research will provide new knowledge to inform cost-efficient measurement, monitoring and verification (MMV) of the environment of CCS projects in coastal waters.
A series of CTD casts were completed using a SBE25plus CTD profile combined with Seabird ECO55 water sampler accommodating six Niskin bottles. Water samples were taken from each cast using pre-programmed depths appropriate to the total water column depth which varied from 14 -20 m. Niskin bottles were closed on the down cast due to limitations of the firing software. The water temperature ranged between 18 and 20 degrees. Oxygen and nutrient samples were taken from most of the successful Niskin bottles samples.
The first three CTD casts were found to have the wrong time stamp as the CTD had been initialised in local time. This was corrected to UTC and the metadata for the casts updated.
