Susan E. Wijffels (CSIRO) This voyage consisted of two legs. Leg 1 from Wellington to Tonga and Leg 2 from Tonga to Apia. These voyages aquired data on the structure and carbon storage of the oceans around Australia to test climate model predictions relating to the Greenhouse Effect and/or natural decadal variability. Data collected included standard full depth CTD and Niskin bottle casts anaylised to WOCE standard including dissolved inorganic carbon concentrations (DIC), alkalinity, carbon isotope analyses. In collaboration with the Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratories and the University of Washington, concentrations of freons were measured. These are an important indicator of ventilation rates and are particularly useful for testing ocean circulation models.
