Equipment Used
Hydrographic and current profiling with a CTD, and either a 150 or 600 kHz 
acousitic Doppler current profiler (ADCP) on the North Brazil shelf on board the 
R/V Iselin during cruise I9113, Legs 3 and 4.
Large scale survey of the North Brazil shelf consisting of 7
cross-shelf transects to map the initial fields of temperature, salinity,
sigma-t, fluorescence, optical backscattering and light transmission at stations
