Conductivity-Temperature-Depth (CTD) data including Lowered Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (LADCP) cast data. Nineteen full-depth CTD stations were occupied during cruise JR158, with one shallow test deployment. Each cast acquired measurements from a Seabird CTD and dissolved oxygen sensor, beam transmissometer, fluorometer, altimeter and 8x10 litre bottle rosette.

|Lineage:||Each station was processed initially on a laptop using the Seabird processing software Seasoft. The files output by Seasave have appendices: .DAT, .HDR, .BL, .ROS, .CON. The .CON files for each cast contain the calibration coefficients for the instrument. These are updated when calibration sheets are received back from the manufacturer. The .HDR files contain the information in the header of each cast file. The .DAT files are the data files from each cast and are in binary form. The .BL and .ROS files contain information on bottle firings of the rosette. For initial data processing we used Seasoft's programmes, SBE Data Processing, Version 5.31b. For full data processing details see the Cruise Report.|

|Data Collection:||The CTD transect was commenced at the offshore end of the line following deployment of
all drifters. A total of 20 CTD casts at 20 stations were undertaken on the cruise including one test cast to 290m (CTD001), all of which used the 12-way stainless steel frame. The first station, 001, was carried out on the shelf just to the east of Joinville Island to test the CTD package. The remaining 19 were carried out in a single transect beginning in the Weddell Sea and moving westward across the slope and shelf break and onto the shelf. Cast 020 was performed at the same location as cast 001. Each cast acquired measurements from a Seabird CTD and dissolved oxygen sensor, beam transmissometer, fluorometer, altimeter and 8x10 litre bottle rosette.
