ObjectivesCITHER 2 LEG 1 CITHER 2 (Circulation Thermocline) prend part dans le progra WDCAR396605

CITHER2, from WOCE-France, constitutes a two leg cruise studying oceanic volume transports in and out of the western boundary layer of the South Atlantic Ocean (WOCE section A17). Hydological and geochemical parameters were measured at 235 top-to-bottom stations along a quasi-meridional line from 52 S to 10 N (at about 600 km from continental slope) and, perpendicular to this line, along three segments joining the continental slope at about 35 S, 13 S and 10 N.
