Broadscale water sampling for oxygen isotope analysis
Robert W. Houghton
- At each of the fixed broadscale stations water samples should be
collected at those of the following depths that are appropriate: surface,
20m, 50m, 100m, 200m, bottom.
- Use the 60ml amber glass bottles and fill as for a salinity sample:
rinse three times, fill leaving small air bubble at top, and seal with two
turns of black tape.
- Store and ship in 48 bottle cartons, do not freeze. Plastic containers
are provided for convenient handling and storage on the ship deck.
- Required for subsequent analysis is a record of station, depth,
temperature, and salinity for each water sample.
