Atlantic inflow experiment, GIN Sea cruise'86: Data report: Part I: Hydrography + (Appendixes B and C)
An investigation of the inflow of North Atlantic surface water into the Greenland-Norwegian-IcelandSea has been undertaken as a major observational component of SACLANTCEN's GIN Sea Project.Included in this data report are the hydrographic results of the Tydeman (NL) Cruise conducted between 26 May and 30 June 1986. Pressure, temperature, conductivity, dissolved oxygen, and light transmittance were recorded via in-situ sensors on a CTD and water samples for the analysis of salinity, dissolved oxygen, nitrate, nitrite, silicate, chlorophyll, phaeophytin, particulate organic carbon, oxygen-18, tritium, phytoplankton, and the heavy metals of iron, chromium and nickel were taken from selected depths using a Rosette sampling system. This report summarises the method of data acquisition and reduction and it presents a selection of the results in plots and tables.
