ObjectivesIndian and Antarctic Oceans, hydrographic survey for WOCE Hydrographic Program, Lines I8S and I9S (Indian Ocean), meridional lines along 115°E, and 85° to 95°E between about 30°S and the Antarctic continent. A series of CTD-02 stations were occupied and high quality water property data collected. At each station measurements of temperature, salinity and dissolved oxygen concentration were made continuously with depth, and the concentrations of dissolved silica, phosphate, nitrate/nitrite were measured. Additionally, measurements of freon, tritium and CO2 were made at selected levels. Continuous echo-sounding was maintained along the cruise track, as well as ACDP current measurements.
