Cruise summary report

Cruise Info. 
Ship name (ship code)RRS James Clark Ross (74JC)
Cruise identifierJR19971217 (JR27)
Cruise period1997-12-17 — 1998-01-08
StatusCompleted
PurposeResearch
Objectives1. To provide a high quality dissolved inorganic nutrient and dissolved oxygen data set to enable fluxes of these components to be generated in association with the heat, momentum and salt fluxes derived from the physical measurements.
2. Involved analyses for dissolved organic nitrogen and phosphorus in the water column. These components have rarely been analysed before on major oceanographic cruises.
