Description 
Summary

The data set comprises data collected by the UOR on two cruises in the equatorial Pacific by the RVTG Thompson. The cruises were as follows: RVTG Thompson 1/92 (3 February - 6 March 1992) comprising 13 tows, depths between 0 and 100m, 1600 km (600 undulations); RVTG Thompson 8/92 (12 August - 12 September 1992) comprising 13 tows, depths between 0 and 100m, (1090 undulations) 2500 km. The cruises measured conductivity, salinity, temperature, depth, chlorophyll and PAR.
