Survey InvestigatorDescription
SS 11/95

B. Tilbrook (for F.B. Griffiths) (CSIRO) Southern Surveyor cruise SS 11/95 was the third cruise of the Joint Global Ocean Flux Study (JGOFS) and also the ACE-1 International Global Atmospheric Chemistry project. The cruise track was in the Southern Ocean west and south of Tasmania, extending as far 53 degrees south, and including the WOCE section SR3 line. Cruise objectives include studying the physical, chemical and biological environment and carbon fluxes during the spring bloom period (JGOFS), and atmospheric chemistry and cloud dynamics over the Southern Ocean (ACE-1). Measurements undertaken include in-situ optical data, primary production, particulate carbon concentrations, isotopic C and N, acoustic backscatter, MIDOC trawls, CO2 concentrations, DMSP/DMS production, fluorescence studies of phytoplankton populations, pigment sampling, radon measurements, and larval fish studies.
SS 01/95

J. Parslow (CSIRO) Southern Surveyor cruise SS 01/95 was the second cruise of the Joint Global Ocean Flux Study (JGOFS). Cruise was carried out in the Southern Ocean south and west of Tasmania, between 40 degrees S to 54 degrees S, and 140 degrees E to 147 degrees E. The aims of the cruise were to identify and understand the interactions of the physical, chemical and biological processes controlling the pools and fluxes of carbon within and between the atmosphere and the ocean in the Southern Ocean in the Australian region. Measurements undertaken include in-situ optical data, primary production, microzooplankton grazing, dissolved and particulate organic carbon and isotopic composition, acoustic backscatter recordings and CTD sections. Pigment, zooplankton and trace metal sampling.
AU 1991/92 V1 WOCE91

M. Betts (AAD) Australian Antarctic Division Voyages 1 and 1.1 1991-92 (WOCE91) were carried out by the Aurora Australis. This was the first WOCE SR3 transect from Tasmania to Dibble Ice Tongue and return. V1 went from Macquarie Island but returned owing to equipment failure. V1.1 is the SR3 leg from north to south and return on the same transect to pick up any missing CTD stations. Underway and CTD data were collected during the voyage. The principal scientific data from this cruise are held by the Australian Antarctic Division at Kingston, Tasmania.
FR 01/90

F.B. Griffiths (CSIRO) Cruise FR 01/90 forms part of the JGOFS (Joint Global Ocean Flux Study). It took place in the Tasman Sea and Southern Ocean east and south of Tasmania, to latitude 51 degrees south, with the majority of sampling along longitude 152 E. Cruise objectives included study of the physical structure, nutrients, biomass of phyoplankton and zooplankton, and primary production around the Subtropical Convergence (STC); to determine the relationship between satellite measurements of sea surface temperature and physical and chemical oceanography from underway studies; to relate ocean colour (from airborne and handheld sensors) to chlorophyll and biomass; to study CO2 and related biological processes around the STC; to study the distribution of fish larvae; and to investigate mixing across the STC.
