Trace metal water column samples collected on the SIPEX II voyage of the Aurora Australis

Abstract: This dataset will be comprised of measurements taken from trace metal water column samples collected during the SIPEX II Antarctic marine science voyage in 2012. In its current form no sample analysis has been performed. The dataset simply contains the log sheets for the Trace Metals Rosette (TMR) deployments as well as the output files from the TMR software (General Oceanics).

Quality The following problems were encountered:

TMR1 = had to come up faster during the ascent because we were running out of water behind the ship due to inbound sea-ice
TMR2 = Bottle 11 didn't fire
TMR3 = Bottle 7 didn't fire
TMR4 = not a single bottle fired, we suspect due to the extremely cold temperatures
TMR5 = weird yellow stringy things attached to the TMR when it came back up on deck; not biological, likely some kind of contamination from the ship
TMR6 = Bottle 1 leaked from the bottom when the vent was opened for sampling
TMR7 = no issues
TMR8 = no issues
