Abstract/Summary

This report describes the ninth occupation of the Drake Passage section, established during the World Ocean Circulation Experiment as repeat section SR1b. It was first occupied by Southampton Oceanography Centre in collaboration with the British Antarctic Survey in 1993, and has been re-occupied most years. Thirty-two full depth stations were completed, a test station, the RaTS station in Marguarite Bay, and the 30 stations for the SR1b Drake Passage section. The CTD was a Sea-Bird 911plus with dual temperature and conductivity sensors, an altimeter and an SBE35 thermometer. Direct velocity (LADCP) measurements were also made, using a downward looking RDI Workhorse WH300 ADCP (WH) unit. Various underway measurements included navigation, VM-ADCP, sea surface temperature and salinity, water depth and meteorological parameters.
