Between 10 October and 17 November 1982, the R/V Acania occupied 184 scientific stations in the eastern N. Pacific Ocean to observe spatial variability in optical, physical, biological and chemical properties of sea water. This expedition was part of the Optical Dynamics Experiment (ODEX). The experimental objective of ODEX is to characterize vertical distributions of optical properties in the open ocean, and their associations with vertical distributions of temperature, salinity, density, phytoplankton pigment concentrations, nutrient concentrations, and primary productivity: these are the ingredients needed to initialize and test 1-dimensional model predictions of changes in vertical optical propagation in response to atmospheric and radiation forcing of the upper ocean
