Description 
Summary

The DUTCH-WARP project of the Netherlands Institute for Sea Research studies the circulation and mixing of water masses in the eastern North Atlantic Ocean. During two cruises of RV Tyro in 1990 and 1991, physical hydrographic parameters (temperature and salinity) as well as biogeochemical parameters (nutrients, oxygen and total carbon dioxide) were measured.
