Abstract: From the abstract and introduction of ANARE Research Notes 44 - ADBEX I cruise to the Prydz Bay region, 1982: nutrient data.

Nitrate, phosphate and silicate concentrations obtained during the ADBEX I cruise to the Prydz Bay region in November and December 1982 are plotted with depth and the raw data are tabulated. Location of the sampling stations and the average concentration of each nutrient ... View entire text

Quality Taken from the Methods section of the referenced paper:

Water samples were collected at the different depths using a rosette sampler with 5 L Niskin bottles in conjunction with the CTD unit. Sub-samples of 250 mL were filtered through GF/F glass fibre filters, transferred to Whirlpacks and immediately frozen for analysis in Australia.

Analyses were carried out by the Australian Government Analytical Laboratories with the standard methods of Grasshoff, K., Ehrhardt, M., Kremling, K. (1976) Methods of Seawater Analysis; Verlag Chemie.
