Abstract

This dataset consists of 100 CTD profiles collected during the Atlantic Meridional Transect programme cruise 18 (AMT18 JR20081003) between 4th October and 7th November 2008. 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.
