Description:
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. The fields in this dataset are: oceanography ship station number date start time bottom time finish time cruise start position bottom position finish position maximum position bottom depth pressure sigma-T temperature (C) (ITS-90) salinity (PSS78) density-1000 (kg.m-3) specific volume anomaly x 108 geopotential anomaly dissolved oxygen (mmol.l-1) number of data points used in the 2 dbar averaging bin standard deviation of temperature values in the 2 dbar bin standard deviation of conductivity values in the 2 dbar bin fluorescence photosynthetically active radiation CTD pressure (dbar) CTD temperature (C) (ITS-90) reversing thermometer temperature (C) CTD conductivity (mS.cm-1) CTD salinity (PSS78) bottle salinity (PSS78) bottle quality flag (-1=rejected, 0=suspect, 1=good) niskin bottle number
