ObjectivesThis leg of the Indian Ocean WHP study focussed on the southwest region of this ocean (WOCE designation I4, I5W, I7C). A total of 134 full-water-column CTD/O2 stations were occupied and water samples collected at up to 36 levels during the up-casts. Samples were analysed for salinity, dissolved oxygen, silica, nitrate/nitrite, phosphate, CFC-11 and -12, total carbon and alkalinity, and chlorophyll. Samples were also analysed for 3He, 3H, 14C and barium. Underway measurements included temperature, salinity and surface meteorology. ADCP and surface drifters were also used.
