  • This dataset comprises 76 hydrographic data profiles, collected by a conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) sensor package, during September - October 2003 along the Atlantic Meridional Transect (AMT), a distance of almost 13,500 km, from the UK to the Falkland Islands. A complete list of all data parameters are described by the SeaDataNet Parameter Discovery Vocabulary (PDV) keywords assigned in this metadata record. The data were collected by the Plymouth Marine Laboratory as part of the Atlantic Meridional Transect (Phase2) programme.

  • This dataset comprises 9 hydrographic data profiles, collected by a conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) sensor package, during April 2005 from several stations close to the Canary Islands leading to a transect at approximately 24.5 N as far as the mid-Atlantic Ridge. A complete list of all data parameters are described by the SeaDataNet Parameter Discovery Vocabulary (PDV) keywords assigned in this metadata record. The data were collected by the Southampton Oceanography Centre as part of the Rapid Climate Change programme.

  • This dataset comprises 125 hydrographic data profiles, collected by a conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) sensor package, during 4 April to 10 May 2004 on a trans-Atlantic section from Freeport in the Bahamas to Santa Cruz de Tenerife, covering the Florida Current at 27N, and subsequently across the Atlantic Ocean on a transect between approximately 24 and 27.5N. A complete list of all data parameters are described by the SeaDataNet Parameter Discovery Vocabulary (PDV) keywords assigned in this metadata record. The data were collected by the Southampton Oceanography Centre as part of the Rapid Climate Change programme.

  • The dataset comprises 32 hydrographic data profiles, collected by a conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) sensor package, from the South Atlantic Ocean area. One of eight repeat hydrography section across Drake Passage. 753 km section from Elephant Island to Burdwood Bank, plus one test station at the Rothera Time Series (RaTS) site, just off Biscoe Wharf at Rothera. CTD casts taken between December 2002 and January 2003. A complete list of all data parameters are described by the SeaDataNet Parameter Discovery Vocabulary (PDV) keywords assigned in this metadata record. The data were collected by the Southampton Oceanography Centre.

  • The dataset comprises 57 hydrographic data profiles, collected by a conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) sensor package, during September - October 1996. Leg A of the cruise occupied the World Ocean Circulation Experiment (WOCE) Atlantic Area 12 (AR12) with stations in the North East Atlantic specifically the Rockall Trough, Lousy Bank and the Iceland Basin. A complete list of all data parameters are described by the SeaDataNet Parameter Discovery Vocabulary (PDV) keywords assigned in this metadata record. The data were collected by the University of Liverpool Department of Earth Sciences as part of the World Ocean Circulation Experiment (WOCE).

  • The dataset comprises 35 hydrographic data profiles, collected by a conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) sensor package, from across the South West Atlantic Ocean (limit 20W) area specifically Drake Passage during December 2004. A complete list of all data parameters are described by the SeaDataNet Parameter Discovery Vocabulary (PDV) keywords assigned in this metadata record. The data were collected by the Southampton Oceanography Centre.

  • The dataset comprises 54 hydrographic data profiles, collected by a conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) sensor package, during December 1997 - January 1998 from stations on the World Ocean Circulation Experiment section SR1b in the Drake Passage. Section SR1b end points are south of the Falkland Islands to Elephant Island at the north end of the Antarctic Peninsula. A complete list of all data parameters are described by the SeaDataNet Parameter Discovery Vocabulary (PDV) keywords assigned in this metadata record. The data were collected by the Southampton Oceanography Centre as part of the World Ocean Circulation Experiment (WOCE).

  • The dataset comprises 125 hydrographic data profiles, collected by a conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) sensor package, during September - October 1999 in the North East Atlantic Ocean between Iceland and Scotland A complete list of all data parameters are described by the SeaDataNet Parameter Discovery Vocabulary (PDV) keywords assigned in this metadata record. The data were collected by the Southampton Oceanography Centre.

  • This dataset comprises 16 hydrographic data profiles, collected by a conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) sensor package, during March 2004 from Great Abaco Island along a 26.5N transect from approximately 76.9W to 72W. A complete list of all data parameters are described by the SeaDataNet Parameter Discovery Vocabulary (PDV) keywords assigned in this metadata record. The data were collected by the Southampton Oceanography Centre as part of the Rapid Climate Change programme.

  • The Autosub Under Ice (AUI) data set comprises hydrographic measurements including temperature, salinity, fluorescence, attenuance, dissolved oxygen concentrations and current velocities. Water samples were also collected for salinity and geochemical analysis, and the data set also includes bathymetric and sediment data. The measurements were collected near Greenland and Antarctica in the respective summer seasons for each hemisphere during 2003, 2004 and 2005. The programme consisted of four cruises onboard the ice-capable research vessel RRS James Clark Ross (JCR106, JCR106B, JCR84, JCR97). Data were collected by both shipboard sensors and those attached to the Autosub (an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle) package. Shipboard data collection included deployment of a conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) package with attached auxiliary sensors. Lowered acoustic Dopper current profilers (LADCPs) were also attached to the CTD frame, while discrete water samples were collected from the CTD stations. Oceanographic, bathymetric and sediment data were collected along the ship's track, while further current data were collected from two mooring deployments. Autosub measurements included standard environmental parameters and acoustic instruments were used to measure ice shelf, sea ice and ocean bottom relief at high resolution. A camera was also attached to the vehicle, permitting the collection of detailed photographs of the seabed. Autosub had been upgraded to achieve 1000 km range and 2500 m water depth, which provided unprecedented access to ice covered regions. The AUI programme was established to investigate the marine environment of floating ice shelves with a view to advancing our understanding of their role in the climate system. It brought together researchers and engineers from a number of UK institutions, with the project being coordinated by the National Oceanography Centre, Southampton.
