Subantarctic zone oceanography - SAZ Project 1997-1998 - Sediment Trap Data
Entry ID: ASAC_2256_Sediment

Abstract: Oceanographic processes in the subantarctic region contribute crucially to the physical and biogeochemical aspects of the global climate system. To explore and quantify these contributions, the Antarctic Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) organised the SAZ Project, a multidisciplinary, multiship investigation carried out south of Australia in the austral summer of 1997-1998.
