Summary
Abstract: Oceanographic measurements were conducted along WOCE Southern Ocean meridional section SR3 between Tasmania and Antarctica from September to October 1991. A total of 36 CTD vertical profile stations were taken. Over 600 Niskin bottle water samples were collected for measurements of parameters including salinity, dissolved oxygen, nutrients (phosphate, nitrate+nitrite, silicate), chlorofluorocarbons, and biological parameters, using a 24 bottle rosette sampler.
