Expedition: Oden Southern Ocean 2007/08. Data Collected Onboard Icebreaker Oden

Principal investigator(s):

Abstract:

During the 2007/08 season, the Swedish icebreaker Oden worked in Antarctica for the second time. The US research council National Science Foundation chartered Oden from the Swedish Maritime Administration and the Swedish Polar Research Secretariat to break the ice outside the Antarctic station McMurdo by the Ross Sea. Oden left Landskrona 19 October 2007, crossed the Atlantic Ocean and bunkered in South America. The research party embarked in Punta Arenas, Chile, and the ship left for Antarctica on 29 November 2007. 20 days was dedicated to marine science – mainly sampling – on the cruise from South America to the Antarctic. Oden reached McMurdo 7 January 2008 and the expedition participants flew to New Zealand for further travelling home. The icebreaker came back to Sweden in March. The Swedish Polar Research Secretariat was in charge of expedition management, information technology and medical care onboard.

Description:

This data set contains meteorological, oceanographic and ship data collected during the American-Swedish expedition Oden Southern Ocean 2007/08, which was an international research cruise using the icebreaker Oden. The expedition embarked from Landskrona, Sweden on October 19 2007 and arrived in McMurdo Januari 8 2008. Data include meteorological variables: Air temperature, Humidity, Wind direction/speed, Atmospheric pressure. Oceanographic variables: Sea water temperature, Conductivity, Salinity and Sound velocity. Ship data: Position, Speed, Course, Water depth. Quality Information: Obviously erroneous data (e.g. negative air pressure) have been omitted. No other processing or quality check of the data has been undertaken. Users should be aware of this in further data handling and analysis.

Description:

This data set contains conductivity, temperature and depth data collected during the American-Swedish expedition Oden Southern Ocean 2007/08, which was an international research cruise using the icebreaker Oden. The expedition embarked from Landskrona, Sweden on October 19 2007 and arrived in McMurdo Januari 8 2008. Data include: water depth, pressure, water temperature, conductivity, salinity, chlorophyll (fluourescence) and dissolved oxygen. Further metadata on instrumentation and the individual variables can be found in the info file. Graphics and files describing the route and positions of CTD casts are included in the package.
