Ocean measurements in the Amundsen Sea, Nathaniel B. Palmer Cruise 09-01, 05 January - 28 February 2009 (NODC Accession 0071179)

Metadata Updated: March 10, 2021

We are reporting ocean pressure, temperature, salinity and dissolved oxygen data from 160 CTD/O stations occupied in the Amundsen Sea. These austral summer observations, most extending from within a few meters of the sea surface to a few meters of the sea floor, comprise the major portion of several related data sets obtained during cruise NBP09-01, from Punta Arenas to Punta Arenas, Chile. Additional sampling was undertaken for several geochemical and biological parameters, and ocean currents, along with continuous underway mapping of sea surface properties, meteorological variables and bathymetry.
