This dataset contains CTD (conductivity, temperature, depth) and nutrient (nitrate, phosphate, silicate) data obtained from the Antarctic Division BIOMASS Experiment I (ADBEX I) cruise of the Nella Dan, during Nov - Dec 1982. This cruise is the second in a series of six, conducting a long term field survey of krill and other zooplankton. 79 CTD casts were taken in the Prydz Bay region, and ... nutrient data were collected at 28 out of the 79 CTD stations. Casts within the shelf zone were made to the bottom and down to 2000 m offshore. Oceanographic sampling was subordinate to other programs such as the phytoplankton survey, hence the locations of the CTD stations were not always ideal for oceanographic purposes. Nutrient samples were collected to provide information for the interpretation of phytoplankton distribution and abundance.
