        abstract:  NODC Accession 0113549 includes biological, chemical, discrete sample, physical and profile data collected from HESPERIDES in the South Atlantic Ocean from 1995-12-03 to 1996-01-05 and retrieved during cruise CARINA/29HE19951203. These data include ALKALINITY, AMMONIUM, CHLOROPHYLL A, DISSOLVED ORGANIC CARBON, DISSOLVED OXYGEN, HYDROSTATIC PRESSURE, NITRATE, NITRITE, PARTICULATE ORGANIC CARBON, PARTICULATE ORGANIC NITROGEN, PHOSPHATE, Potential temperature (theta), SALINITY, SILICATE, WATER TEMPERATURE and pH. The instruments used to collect these data include CTD and bottle. These data were collected by Aida F. Ríos of Bermuda Biological Station for Research and R. Anadon and M. Estrada [affiliation unknown] as part of the CARINA/29HE19951203 data set. The CARINA (CARbon dioxide IN the Atlantic Ocean) data synthesis project is an international collaborative effort of the EU IP CARBOOCEAN, and U.S. partners. It has produced a merged internally consistent data set of open ocean subsurface measurements for biogeochemical investigations, in particular, studies involving the carbon system. The original focus area was the North Atlantic Ocean, but over time the geographic extent expanded and CARINA now includes data from the entire Atlantic, the Arctic Ocean, and the Southern Ocean.
        purpose:  This dataset is available to the public for a wide variety of uses including scientific research and analysis.
