    Water samples were collected at approximately 0.3 m depth at all stations in Hudson Bay during the the 2010 cruise from Kuujjuarapik, PQ to Churchill, MB. We collected samples at basic, mooring and CTD (conductivity-temperature-depth) stations, as well as along two transects made by Zodiac near the mouth of the Rivière de la Grande Baleine and off Cape Tatnam, located at ca. 100 km East of the Nelson River. All water samples were filtered on board, and subsamples were retained for analysis for dissolved and particulate organic carbon and nitrogen, as well as for phosphate, total soluble salts (TSS), chlorophyll a, CDOM (absorbtion and fluorescence spectra), oxygen-18 and salinity. At each station, water column profiles were recorded, each to the bottom or at least 30 m depth, using an Idronaut CTD with conductivity, temperature, depth and turbidity sensors, and a WetLabs ECO Fluorometer for CDOM fluorescence. In addition,we made several water column profiles of absorption and attenuation spectra off the mouth of the Rivière de la Grande Baleine, using a WetLabs hyperspectral absorption and attenuation meter (WetLabs acs). We also recorded miscellaneous water surface reflectance spectra, using a Satlantic HyperSAS instrument mounted on the ship's bow, near Rivière de la Grande Baleine, near the mouth of James Bay and in the outer estuary of the Nelson River.

    The CTD data was obtained during the 2010 ArcticNet scientific cruise #1003b. The data were collected from October 8 to 17, 2010, aboard the CCGS Amundsen. There were 27 casts associated to 18 stations, located in 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.
