Expedition: Oden Southern Ocean 2008/09. Data Collected Onboard Icebreaker Oden

Principal investigator(s):

Abstract:

Oden Southern Ocean 2008/09 was a cooperative effort of the Swedish Polar Research Secretariat and the National Science Foundation (NSF) in the USA. It was the third season in a row icebreaker Oden worked in Antarctica. The basis of the cooperative effort was that NSF chartered Oden from the Swedish Maritime Administration and the Swedish Polar Research Secretariat to break an ice channel to the McMurdo Antarctic Station in the Ross Sea, allowing supply vessels to reach the station. As Oden sailed through the Southern Ocean, researchers had an opportunity to perform marine studies. The marine research conducted during Oden Southern Ocean 2008/09 was interdisciplinary, and involved environmental chemistry, chemical and physical oceanography, climate research, epidemiology and evolutionary biology. The scientific findings from the expedition will play an important role in our understanding of the Antarctic system and its role in climate change. Its extreme climate and isolated location makes the Antarctic a unique platform for studying the Earth’s climatic, biological and geological evolution,

Description:

This data set contains meteorological, oceanographic and ship data collected during the American-Swedish expedition Oden Southern Ocean 2008/09, which was an international research cruise using the icebreaker Oden. The expedition embarked from Gothenborg, Sweden on October 28 2008 and arrived in McMurdo Januari 2009. 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. Further metadata on instrumentation and the individual variables can be found in the info file. Graphics and files describing the route are included in the package. 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.

Collection methodology:

Description:

This data set contains conductivity, temperature and depth data collected during the American-Swedish expedition Oden Southern Ocean 2008/09, which was an international research cruise using the icebreaker Oden. The expedition embarked from Gothenborg, Sweden on October 28 2008 and arrived in McMurdo Januari 2009. Data include: water depth, pressure, water temperature, salinity, 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.
