To gain information on the physical parameters of the water masses in the area of the Coral Patch seamount (NE Atlantic), one CTD measurement was accomplished in close vicinity to the seamount (station GeoB 12761: 34°31.210'N, 11°08.510'W, 4430m water depth). CTD measurement were conducted during R/V PELAGIA expedition 64PE284 in spring 2008 (Hebbeln and cruise participants, 2008, urn:nbn:de:gbv:46-ep000103738). The CTD measurement of the water column down to a maximum water depth of 2500m was conducted using a SEABIRD "SBE 9 plus" underwater unit and a SEABIRD "SBE 11 plus" deck unit. The vertical profile over the water column provided standard data for conductivity, temperature and pressure. Additionally, the CTD was equipped with sensors for optical backscatter (turbidity), fluorescence (chlorophyll) and dissolved oxygen. Conductivity and temperature data were used to compute salinity.
