Aurora Australis Southern Ocean oceanographic (CTD) data, cruise 2007/08 V1 (SIPEX)Entry ID: SIPEX_Ocean
Abstract: We report on the late winter oceanography observed beneath Antarctic sea ice offshore from the Sabrina and BANZARE coast of Wilkes Land, East Antarctica (115- 125 E) in September-October 2007 during the Sea Ice Physics and Ecosystem eXperiment (SIPEX) research voyage. A pilot program using specifically designed 'through-ice' Conductivity-Temperature-Depth (CTD) and acoustic Doppler current ... profiling (ADCP) systems was conducted to opportunistically measure water mass properties and ocean currents during major ice stations.
This project involved two independent sub-ice observation platforms: A winch-driven Conductivity-Temperature-Depth system for measuring basic water mass properties and an acoustic Doppler current profiling (ADCP)/GPS system for measuring ocean currents and ice drift. Hereafter these are referred to as the CTD and ADCP systems respectively.
The CTD system comprised of an Falmouth Scientific Institute (FSI) CTD instrument, a tripod and over 1000m of polyethylene rope on a winch/drum
attached to a metal sled.
