Principal investigators:
Lynne D. Talley , Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UCSD (CTD, basic hydrographic data)
M. Susan Lozier, Duke University (nutrients)


CTD and hydrographic data were collected on each cruise in CLIMODE. The major data sets are from the winter cruises (CLIMODE 2, 4) (2006 and 2007). Reduced data sets were collected on the mooring servicing cruises (CLIMODE 1, 3, 5) (Fall 2005, 2006, 2007).
