BODC Cruise Metadata Report for RRS James Clark Ross (74JC) cruise JR20001121 (JR55)

Introduction

This report collates information from the BODC cruise inventory and oceanographic databases. It presents

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RRS James Clark Ross (74JC) cruise JR20001121 (JR55)
Short name JR20001121 (JR55)
Objectives and Narrative Objectives:
1. To determine the interannual variability of the position, structure, transport & other properties of the ACC at Drake Passage.
2. By comparing geostrophic velocities with those from the lowered ADCP, determine the size of ageostrophic motions & attempt to estimate barotropic components.
3. To examine the temperature & salinity structure of water flowing through Drake Passage.
