Ship name (ship code)RRS James Clark Ross (74JC)
Cruise identifierJR19931120 (JR00a)
Cruise period1993-11-20 — 1993-12-18
StatusCompleted
Port of departureStanley, Falkland Islands (Malvinas)
Port of returnStanley, Falkland Islands (Malvinas)
PurposeResearch
Objectives1. To estimate the volume flux across the section i.e. the flux of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current at Drake Passage.
2. To determine the water mass charateristics on the section and to determine whether and where secular changes are found.
3. To submit to the WHPO a data set and thereby contribute to the global measurements necessary to meet the objectives of WOCE.
