This hydrographic survey formed part of the Atlantic WHP Repeat Programme (WOCE Designation AR16/AR06). During the cruise a total of 114 CTD/rosette stations were occupied (CTDO equipped with 12 position rosette with 2.7 l Teflon-type water sampling bottles). Water sampling included CTDO, speed of sound, salinity, oxygenation, temperature and pressure. Underway measurements included navigation and bathymetry, thermosalinograph and underway dissolved oxygen, flurormeter, etc. Leg 3 of a 3 leg cruise.
