Cruise Inventory Information

Long name Aurora Australis cruise 09AR9404_1
Short name 09AR9404_1
Objectives and Narrative Oceanographic measurements were conducted along WOCE Southern Ocean meridional section SR3 between Tasmania and Antarctica, and along the part of WOCE Southern ocean zonal section S4 lying between approximately 110 and 162 deg.E. An array of 4 current meter moorings at approximately 51 deg.S in the vicinity of the SR3 line was successfully recovered. A total of 107 CTD vertical profile stations were taken, most to near bottom. Over 2380 Niskin bottle water samples were collected for the measurement of salinity, dissolved oxygen, nutrients (phosphate, nitrate+nitrite, silicate), chlorofluorocarbons, helium, tritium, dissolved inorganic carbon, alkalinity, carbon isotopes, dissolved organic carbon, dimethyl sulphide/dimethyl sulphoniopropionate, iodate/iodide, oxygen 18, primary productivity, and biological parameters, using a 24 bottle rosette sampler.
