Description 
Summary

The data set comprises the data collected on Bon Entende cruise 1/86 (14 September to 05 October 1986). The following data were collected: surface underway measurements of temperature, salinity, transmittance and fluorescence; 13 days of moored current meter measurements; 36 CTD profiles; 25 XBT profiles; and phosphate and nitrate. SeaSoar was also deployed, measuring temperature and salinity.
