Abstract

In-situ measurement of physical characteristics of seawater (temperature, salinity, and density) collected with a single fire module CTD (Conductivity, Temperature, Depth) in the northern Bay of Bengal (NBoB), as a part of the Indian Ocean, are given in this article. Due to the scanty of data in the NBoB, such in-situ measurements will certainly play a crucial role in understanding regional oceanic processes. The presented data were collected onboard during two cruises covering 12 stations with high resolution (0.2 m depth) up to 50-meter contour depth from 20.5778 N, 92.3578 E to 21.287 N, 89.696 E. We present raw CTD data as ASCII (.dat) and Comma Separated Value (.csv), and processed CTD data as netCDF (.nc) format in this article. Additionally, the calculated Mixed Layer Depth that was derived from the netCDF (.nc) file was included in the tabular format. This processed in-situ data would be most useful as a baseline for further studies in coastal and offshore physicochemical properties in the NBoB.
