Summary
Abstract: This dataset contains CTD (conductivity, temperature, depth) data obtained from the Australian Antarctic Marine Biological Ecosystem Research (AAMBER) 86/87 cruise of the Nella Dan, during Feb - Apr 1987. This cruise is the last out of a series of six, conducting a long term field survey on krill, fish and zooplankton. 94 CTD casts were taken in the Prydz Bay region, as a supplement to the krill and fish research program. Casts were made to the bottom over the continental shelf, and to either 200 m or 1000 m off the shelf. This dataset is a subset of the whole cruise data.

The fields in this dataset are:
Pressure
Temperature
Sigma-T
Salinity
Geopotential Anomaly
Specific volume Anomaly
samples
deviation
conduction

Quality Some problems were experienced with the conductivity cell freezing, and after March 3rd, 1987 only temperature profiles could be taken. Oceanography measurements were taken where possible, which was not always at ideal locations. Therefore coverage of the area is not necessarily complete. This cruise is however part of a series of 6 cruises which operated in this area, providing data from varying ... View entire text
