Cruise Info. 
Ship name (ship code)FS Meteor (06M3)
Cruise identifierM18_1
Cruise period1991-09-02 — 1991-09-25
StatusCompleted
Port of departureReykjavík, Iceland
Port of returnHamburg, Germany
ObjectivesNorth Atlantic, WOCE section A01E
Cruise studied hydrographical and nutrient parameters and tracer substances such as tritium, helium, CFC's and radiocarbon. In addition the quantities relevant to determine the ocean carbon cycle were sampled. Measurements on stratification were complemented by direct current measurements, employing ADCP for the upper 300m and deploying long term moored current meter arrays along the survey line (Ireland to Kap Farvel)
