attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String Ocean Networks Canada is a not-for-profit society that operates and manages innovative cabled observatories on behalf of the University of Victoria that supply continuous power and Internet connectivity to various scientific instruments located in coastal, deep-ocean, and Arctic environments. Thermosalinograph data are collected by Sea-Bird Thermosalinograph 45 (SN 48) (deviceid=22800) from a mobile platform (as defined in NERC 2.0 Collection L06 Version 13) deployed on the Tsawwassen-Duke Point ferry route in the Strait of Georgia between Vancouver and Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada.The externally powered SBE 45, typically mounted near the ship's seawater intake, accurately determines sea surface temperature and conductivity from underway vessels. Measured data and derived variables (salinity, sound velocity) are output in real-time in engineering units. As an option, the SBE 45 connects to an AC-powered interface box near a computer. The interface box provides power and an isolated data interface; it contains a NMEA 0183 port for appending navigation data, and a port for appending the output of an optional remote temperature sensor (SBE 38). The SBE 38, installed at the seawater intake (ideally near the bow), measures sea surface temperature with minimal thermal contamination from the hull. For more information on the device see
