A hydrographic survey was conducted in the southern Pacific Ocean aboard the NSF vessel RVIB Palmer from 21 March 2013 - 05 May 2014.  A total of 90 rosette/CTD/LADCP stations were occupied on a transect running roughly along longitude 150°W. CTD casts extended to within 10 meters of the seafloor and up to 36 water samples were collected throughout the water column. CTDO (conductivity, temperature, pressure, oxygen), transmissometer, fluorometer, and LADCP (lowered acoustic Doppler current profiler) electronic data; rosette water samples; and underway shipboard ADCP and carbon dioxide (CO2) measurements were collected during the survey.
