Sampling Strategy
Eight CTD stations were visited cruising southwards; two stations at 63.9 degrees S (SIZ), 60.9 degrees S (SAZ) were re-visited after 11 and 17 days from the first sampling, respectively. A station at 51 degrees S was sampled for phytoplankton determination during the northbound transect. ... View entire text
