Abstract

This dataset consists of 73 CTD profiles collected during the Atlantic Meridional Transect programme cruise 21 (AMT21 D371) between 30th September and 8th November 2011. The cruise track between UK and Chile passed through both north and south Atlantic gyres. This dataset contributes to the AMT time-series of core oceanographic measurements along an north-south transect of the Atlantic Ocean. The profile down casts have been processed, quality controlled, calibrated for salinity, oxygen and fluorescence, then binned to 1 dbar.
