Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RV Franklin cruise 09FA0394
Short name 09FA0394
Objectives and Narrative Cruise FR 03/94 was undertaken to investigate ocean transport in the Tasman Sea. Cruise objectives were to estimate the volume transport (and its time variability) of the EAC along the east Australian coast and in the Tasman Front using CTD, ADCP and current meter moorings; to determine the large-scale general circulation of the Tasman Sea using patterns of tracers (temperature, salinity, oxygen and nutrients) and of density to estimate geostrophic circulation. Current meter moorings were recovered from near Coffs Harbour (previously deployed on FR 10/89 & FR 11/89). Data and water samples were collected for on board and laboratory analyses. Related Franklin cruises are FR 10/89, FR 11/89, FR 02/90, FR 03/90, FR 10/91, FR 07/92 and FR 07/93.
