MetadataShow full item record
CTD sections acquired during the June 2000 Discovery cruise 247 to Faroe Bank Channel are plotted in section (depth and horizontal distance) format. In all there were 17 sections run in a direction mainly across the path of the Faroe Bank Channel overflow and comprising approximately 200 stations. The CTD data have been contoured and displayed in eps format. For each section, there are displays of potential temperature, salinity, potential density and dissolved oxygen concentration. There are also maps showing the location of each section. These figures are public domain.
