Mertz Polynya Experiment, Aurora Australis science cruises au9807 and au9901, and Tangaroa science cruise ta0051 - ship-based CTD, ADCP, LADCP and mooring data
Entry ID: POLYNYA_ship

Abstract: Oceanographic measurements were conducted in the vicinity of the Mertz Polynya, encompassing 2 consecutive seasonal cycles from 1998 to 2000. In the southern winter of 1999, a total of 92 CTD/LADCP vertical profile stations were taken, most to within 20 m of the bottom, with 3 laps completed around the boundary of a box adjacent to the Mertz Glacier. Over 700 Niskin bottle water samples were ... View entire text
