Subantarctic zone oceanography - SAZ Project 1997-1998 - Oceanography Data
Entry ID: ASAC_2256_Oceanography

Abstract: The circumpolar Subantarctic Zone (SAZ) is a globally significant region of water mass formation and carbon dioxide uptake from the atmosphere.
Here we synthesise the results of nine voyages over 8 years to describe the seasonal variation in mixed layer properties in the SAZ south of Australia for comparison with biogeochemical process studies carried out in late summer (March 1998) as part of the ... View entire text
