ObjectivesRV Akademik SergeyVavilov Cruise 36 was a contribution to the Russian CLIVAR and World Ocean Research Programme. Underway measurements of the surface temperature, conductivity and currents in the upper 800 m were designed to enable the ocean circulation in Drake Passage and the Scotia Sea to be mapped and in particular the course and short-term variability of the Subantarctic, Polar and Southern Front of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current within the region to be determined. The main goal is austral summer monitoring of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current.
