Description: Vertical profiles for optical properties.  
Surface measurements underway (T,S) Description: Measurements of conductivity, temperature, pH, dissolved oxygen and suspended particle load recorded throughout the day using the NRAs system.  
Chemical oceanography  
Oxygen Description: Measurements of conductivity, temperature, pH, dissolved oxygen and suspended particle load recorded throughout the day using the NRAs system.  
pH Description: Measurements of conductivity, temperature, pH, dissolved oxygen and suspended particle load recorded throughout the day using the NRAs system.  
Contamination  
Suspended matter Description: Samples collected at selected number of stations for gravimetric, C/N, chlorophyll, phytoplankton identification and particle size analysis.  
Suspended matter Description: Measurements of conductivity, temperature, pH, dissolved oxygen and suspended particle load recorded throughout the day using the NRAs system.
