Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RRS James Clark Ross (74JC) cruise JR19990315 (JR40)
Short name JR19990315 (JR40)
Objectives and Narrative ALBATROSS - Antarctic Large-scale Box Analysis and The Role Of the Scotia Sea.

Narrative:
A test station (001) was completed - full depth, all bottles fired at 3200m for CFC bottle blanks and the XBT launched. Section across the Drake Passage (stations 2-46) began 18th March. Stations spaced on every 500m depth contour. Deep stations (4000m) included southwards repeating the stations occupied by the WOCE A21 cruise. Drake Passage section completed on 26th March. CTD cable had caused a lot of trouble so would be replaced at Rothera.

Arrived in Rothera 27th March and departed 28th. The intensive southern section of closely spaced stations to the South Orkneys was begun on 31st March and finished on 2nd April. A 12 hour echo sounder survey was made across the Orkney Passage to accurately locate the sill of the Passage and deduce the number of stations required. 3rd-4th April Orkney Passage sampled. Stations continued in the South Scotia Ridge. A POL BPR was recovered on 8th April. Stations began on the Maurice Ewing Bank section on 14th April. 17th April headed back to Stanley.

Results:
170 CTD rosette water bottle stations were occupied in depths 100 - 4700m with LADCP. Ship-mounted ADCP - primarily operated in water tracking mode but if water <500m then switched to bottom-tracking mode.

2) Salinity, dissolved oxygen, silicate, nitrate+nitrite and phosphate: 170 samples
3) Oxygen isotopes: 16 samples
4) CFC11, CFC12, CFC13 and CCl4: 69 samples
5) Tritium: 67 samples
6) Helium: 67 samples
7) SF6: 17 samples
