This dataset contains CTD (conductivity, temperature, depth) and nutrient (nitrate, nitrite, phosphate, silicate, manganese) data obtained from the Antarctic Division BIOMASS Experiment III (ADBEX III) cruise of the Nella Dan, during Sep - Dec 1985. This cruise is the fifth cruise out of a series of six, conducting a long term field survey on krill and other zooplankton. 50 CTD casts were taken in ... the Prydz Bay region, and nutrient data were collected at 25 of the stations. Casts were made to 2000 m or to near bottom over the continental shelf. The oceanographic and nutrient programs were subordinate to other programs and so the locations of the CTD stations were not always ideal for oceanographic purposes.
