Cruise identifierM27_3
Cruise period1994-02-19 — 1994-03-26
Port of departurePonta Delgada, Portugal
Port of returnRecife, Brazil
ObjectivesHydrographic and ADCP sections to the north and east of Brazil. Deep basin experiment - Brazil basin area. A total of 110 CTD/rosette stations were occupied during the cruise: 24 along AR4W, 16 along AR4E and 70 along AR15. Water sampling on the cruise included measurements of salinity, both by CTD and bottle sample oxygenation determinations, and CTD temperature. Tracer analyses were made for F-11 and F-12. Three moorings were retrieved.
