Lowered Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (LADCP) and Conductivity Temperature Depth (CTD) data collected aboard the RRS James Clark Ross during cruises JR80 and JR110 in 2004. Data were used to calibrate instruments on four ocean moorings deployed in Shags Rock Passage, Scotia Sea. Four CTDs were used during JR110. Data includes continuous ocean profile data (surface to sea floor); temperature, salinity, pressure, current.
Argo floats measure temperature and salinity. Seven floats were deployed in November 2004 from the RRS James Clark Ross cruise JR110. Data were transmitted automatically to the British Oceanographic Data Centre (BODC).
Discrete ocean temperature, salinity and current measurements at four locations in Shag Rocks Passage. Moorings were deployed at 4 locations in Shag Rocks Passage (5255.6700S, 4745.5500W), (5255.6530S, 4745.9920W), (5302.5100S, 4802.7700W), (5302.5100S, 4802.3130W), (5309.0180S, 4829.9480W), (5318.2510S, 4854.8280W) from cruise JR080 in May 2004 and recovered on cruise JR110 in November 2004.
