Summary
Abstract: Between September 25 and October 25 there were a total of 69 CTD casts with the NBP’s 24 bottle rosette system deployed from ship’s Baltic room (‘Baltic CTD’) and 14 casts with a sensor-only CTD package deployed from the stern A-frame (‘Stern CTD’) when conditions or work on the ice did not allow starboard-side access to the water. The Baltic room system includes a 24-place rosette frame with ... View entire text

Purpose: Basic physical and chemical oceanography from CTD, trace metal and other bottle casts is generally poor in the Southern Ocean and particularly so in the ice-covered winter pack ice zone. This data set provides better information on the ocean beneath the ice pack in the Bellingshausen Sea than previously available.
