ObjectivesCruise FR 07/93 was undertaken to study ocean transport in the Tasman Sea. To determine the seasonal variability of the EAC and thus the variability in southward heat flux; to estimate the variability in meridional flow between Tasmania and New Zealand; and to recover moorings measuring transport in the EAC at 30 degrees S. Survey methods included ADCP, CTDs, XBTs and underway instrumentation. Water samples were collected for temperature, salinity, oxygen and nutrient analyses. Related cruises are FR 10/89, FR 11/89, FR 02/90, FR 03/90, FR 10/91, FR 07/92 and FR 03/94.
