Atlantic inflow experiment GIN Sea Cruise'87 datareport: Part I: Tydeman hydrography: volume 1
The hydrographic data from the GIN 87-T cruise on board the HNLMS Tydeman are summarised in this data report. This cruise constituted the first cruise of the 1987 portion of the Atlantic Inflow Experiment,which was designed to investigate the causes and effects of the inflow of Atlantic Water into the Greenland-Iceland-Norwegian (GIN) Sea. The cruise was conducted 29 April-26 May 1987, in the vicinity of the Faeroe Channel and in the Norwegian Sea. Pressure, temperature, conductivity, disaolved oxygen, and light transmittance were recorded in situ via a CTD sample. Water sampleswere taken for the analysis of salinity, dissolved oxygen, nitrate, nitrite, silicate, oxygen-18, particulate organic carbon, chlorophyll-a and phaeophytinfluorescence, and phytoplankton composition. This memorandum describes the methods used in the data acquisition and reduction and presents the data in a selected sequence of plots and tables.
