BODC Cruise Metadata Report for RRS James Clark Ross (74JC) cruise JR19931120 (JR00a)

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 JR19931120 (JR00a)
Short name JR19931120 (JR00a)
Objectives and Narrative 1. To estimate the volume flux across the section i.e. the flux of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current at Drake Passage.
2. To determine the water mass charateristics on the section and to determine whether and where secular changes are found.
3. To submit to the WHPO a data set and thereby contribute to the global measurements necessary to meet the objectives of WOCE.
