CTD Niskin data collected from the BROKE-West voyage of the Aurora Australis, 2006
Entry ID: BROKE-West_CTD_Niskin

Abstract: 3 litres of seawater were collected every 2nd CTD (conductivity, temperature and depth) cast on every CTD transect of the BROKE-West voyage. 7 CTD transects were completed on the BROKE-West voyage, all on southwards legs. Samples were collected at 6 depths in the top 200 m of the water column using niskin bottles. 2 litres were filtered through polycarbonate filters and 1 litre was filtered ... View entire text
