PurposeResearch
ObjectivesThis cruise was a UK contribution to GO-SHIP. The plan was to occupy full-depth CTD stations on the line designated in WOCE/CLIVAR/GO-SHIP planning as A05.

The sampling was full depth measurements of physical parameters by Conductivity-Temperature-Depth (CTD) package, with water sampling for a variety of tracers including oxygen, nutrients, inorganic carbon and CFCs. The data are contributions to a number of NERC projects ('RAGNARoCC' and 'RAPID') and to international projects including GO-SHIP/IOCCP repeat hydrography program.

Climate change will be studied by comparing the new data with historical measurements. Ocean heat transport plays a major role in the coupled ocean-atmosphere climate system. We will study the present-day circulation by calculating the heat and freshwater transported by the ocean across the 24.5N latitude. The ocean western boundary current system, in this case the circulation in the Florida Strait, plays a crucial role in the oceanic heat transport. Therefore we undertook two crossings of the Florida Strait.
