ObjectivesThis WOCE cruise (section designationP10) occupied a hyrdographic section along 149 E from Papua, New Guinea to shelf of Japan near Yokohama as part of the onetime WHP survey of the Pacific Ocean. A CTD (36 place, 10 L rosette) was used on 94 stations with water sampling for salinity, oxygen, nutrients, CFC's, tritium/helium-3, alkalinity, TCO2, and radiocarbon. A lowered ADCP was used on over half of the stations. Underway measurements included pC02, ADCP, digital echo-sounding, thermosalinograph, and meterology. Twelve ALACE floats were deployed along the cruise track to the south of 20 N.
