BODC Cruise Metadata Report for RRS Bransfield cruise AMT6b

Introduction

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

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RRS Bransfield cruise AMT6b
Short name AMT6b
Objectives and Narrative AMT 6b took the AMT route from the Falkland Islands to the UK on the RRS Bransfield, with a small crew of three scientists. The aim of this additional cruise was to take the core measurements of the AMT programme, concentrating on underway data, with optics and XBT sampling where time and manpower allowed. This is important for maintaining the long-term data collection ideals of the AMT programme, particularly in the Southern Ocean where AMT 6, on the RRS James Clark Ross, did not sample as it departed from Capetown.
