Oceanographic measurements were conducted along WOCE Southern Ocean meridional sections SR3 and P11 between Tasmania and Antarctica, from March to May, 1993. A total of 128 CTD vertical profile stations were taken, most to near bottom. Over 2500 Niskin bottle water samples were collected for the measurement of salinity, dissolved oxygen, nutrients (phosphate, nitrate+nitrite, and silicate), ... dissolved inorganic carbon, carbon isotopes, barium, and biological parameters, using 24 and 12 bottle rosette samplers. The data report describes measurement and data processing techniques, and a summary of the data are presented in graphical and tabular form.
The fields in this dataset are: oceanography ship station number date start time bottom time finish time cruise start position bottom position finish position maximum position bottom depth pressure sigma-T temperature (C) (ITS-90) salinity (PSS78) density-1000 (kg.m-3) specific volume anomaly x 108 geopotential anomaly dissolved oxygen (mmol.l-1) number of data points used in the 2 dbar averaging bin standard deviation of temperature values in the 2 dbar bin standard deviation of conductivity values in the 2 dbar bin fluorescence photosynthetically active radiation CTD pressure (dbar) CTD temperature (C) (ITS-90) reversing thermometer temperature (C) CTD conductivity (mS.cm-1) CTD salinity (PSS78) bottle salinity (PSS78) bottle quality flag (-1=rejected, 0=suspect, 1=good) niskin bottle number
