Introduction

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

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name FS Meteor (06M3) cruise M15_3
Short name M15_3
Objectives and Narrative The program started with current measurements in the Brazil Current at 1 S . The shipborne acoustic Doppler current profiler, ADCP, and expendable current profilers, XCPs, were used. This work was followed by the hydrographic WHP stations on the zonal section A9 at 19 S between South America and Africa. In addition to the WHP observations there were CO2 measurements and an air chemistry program.
