NCEI Accession 0117387 includes chemical, discrete sample, physical and profile data collected from SAGAR SAMPADA in the Arabian Sea, Indian Ocean and Laccadive Sea from 1994-03-01 to 1995-05-03. These data include DELTA CARBON-14, DISSOLVED INORGANIC CARBON (DIC), DISSOLVED OXYGEN, HYDROSTATIC PRESSURE, NITRATE, Potential temperature (theta), SALINITY, phosphate and silicate. The instruments used to collect these data include CTD and bottle.

These data were collected by R. Bhushan of Physical Research Laboratory as part of the GLODAPv2_41SS19940301 data set. CDIAC associated the following cruise ID(s) with this data set: SS-118 and SS-132
