ObjectivesOceanographic measurements were conducted in January 1994 along WOCE Southern Ocean meridional section SR3 between Tasmania and Antarctica, and along a northward section lying between 82 and 86 deg.E and crossing the Princess Elizabeth Trough. Additional measurements were made at mooring locations, and at a time series station. A total of 102 CTD vertical profile stations were taken, most to near bottom. Over 2000 Niskin water bottle samples were collected for the measurement of salinity, dissolved oxygen, nutrients (phosphate, nitrate+nitrite, silicate), dissolved inorganic and organic carbon, carbon 13, dimethyl sulphide/dimethyl sulphoniopropionate, iodate/iodide, and biological parameters, using a 24 bottle rosette sampler.
