ObjectivesEastern South Pacific, hydrographic survey for WOCE Hydrographic Program, Line P6. Collect and analyze high-resolution hydrographic and nutrient data at 235 stations along 32 degrees South as part of the South Pacific component of the World Ocean Circulation Experiment (WOCE) Hydrographic Program. Preliminary analysis of the data will begin by focusing on studies of western boundary currents, meridional heat flux, thermocline circulation,, and deep circulation. The section will overlie two current meter arrays off Australia and New Zealand, allowing this to be one of the primary flux lines for WOCE.
