Aurora Australis marine science cruise au0103 (CLIVAR_SR3) - CTD and ADCP data
Entry ID: au0103

Abstract: Oceanographic measurements were conducted along CLIVAR Southern Ocean meridional repeat transect SR3 between Tasmania and Antarctica from October to December 2001. A total of 135 CTD vertical profile stations were taken, more than half to within 20 m of the bottom. Over 2200 Niskin bottle water samples were collected for the measurement of salinity, dissolved oxygen, nutrients, CFC's, CCl4, ... View entire text
