Aurora Australis SAZ Southern Ocean oceanographic data, cruise au9701
Entry ID: au97_9801

Abstract: Oceanographic measurements were conducted in the Subantarctic Zone south of Tasmania in September 1997. 5 sediment trap moorings were deployed, and a total of 10 CTD vertical profiles were taken. Over 90 Niskin bottle water samples were collected for the measurement of salinity and nutrients (phosphate, nitrate+nitrite, silicate).

The fields in this dataset are:
station number
start time
bottom time
finish time
start position
bottom position
finish position
maximum position
bottom depth
temperature (T-90)
specific volume anomaly
geopotential anomaly
dissolved oxygen
photosynthetically active radiation
