Conductivity Temperature Depth (CTD) and water sampling were carried out at 26 stations covering parts of the western Eurasian Basin and one station at the East Greenland continental margin. Water was collected using a 24-bottle rosette sampler equipped with 7.5 l Niskin type bottles and a CTD (Sea Bird 911+). When brought back onboard the rosette was moved into a heated double container as quickly as possible to avoid freezing the samples. Water samples were immediately drawn for the individual parameters to be determined in the following order: CFCs, oxygen, dissolved inorganic carbon/pH/total alkalinity, nutrients, oxygen-18, and salinity.
