Description 
Summary

The data set comprises data collected on two cruises to the Indian Ocean (RRS Charles Darwin 22 and 24) in 1987. Data collected includes shipborne ADCP (continuous measurements during each cruise), moored current meter data (80 days of data from each of 14 meters, 12 days from 2 meters), and 320 CTD profiles. Underway measurements of surface temperature and salinty, and nutrient data (nitrate, silicate) were also collected.
