    The Canadian research icebreaker CCGS Amundsen is equipped with BIONESS (Bedford Institute of Oceanography Net and Environmental Sampling System). It is a multiple-net sampler for zooplancton and micronekton (pelagic animals 1-10 cm in length). It uses a design with nets arranged horizontally rather than vertically. An integrated CTD unit is also integrated to the system and allows recording of the sampled water characteristics. This dataset is composed of CTD profiles and specific data for the volume of water going through the nets during their operation. The BIONESS was deployed during the 2005, 2006, 2013, 2014 and 2016 Amundsen scientific expeditions in summer and fall. The Bioness-CTD data were corrected and controlled by comparing them to CTD-Rosette data when available. Outliers and suspicious measurements were removed from the dataset. Variables are provided for every decibar (dbar) between the maximum and minimum pressure recorded for each cast. Research programs participating in the Amundsen expeditions between 2005 and 2016 include ArcticNet, IOL and BP, BREA, Weston, Netcare, JAMSTEC, iBO and GreenEdge. In-situ data belong to and are under the responsibility of the leading Nets scientists while physical and chemical data from the sensors are part of the Amundsen core data collection.

    The CTD data was obtained during the 2010 ArcticNet scientific cruise #1001b. The data were collected from August 7 to 11, 2010, aboard the CCGS Amundsen. There were 12 casts associated to 8 stations, located in the Eastern Part of the Northwest Passage. The following parameters were measured: temperature, conductivity and pressure (with a Sea-Bird SBE-9plus), dissolved oxygen (Sea-Bird SBE-43), fluorescence (Seapoint chlorophyll fluorometer), CDOM (Wetlabs FL(RT)D), nitrate concentration (Satlantic MBARI-ISUS 5T), transmittance (Wetlabs C-Star transmissometer), light intensity (PAR; Biospherical Instruments QCP2300) and surface light intensity (sPAR; Biospherical Instruments QCP2200). Quality control procedures were applied to the data. Data are available on the Polar Data Catalogue and at the Marine Environmental Data Service (MEDS) of Fisheries and Oceans Canada.
