This record describes Hydrology (HYD) data collected from the Marine National Facility (MNF) RV Investigator voyage IN2019_V02, titled: "SOTS: Southern Ocean Time Series automated moorings for climate and carbon cycle studies southwest of Tasmania; Subantarctic Biogeochemistry of Carbon and Iron, Southern Ocean Time Series site." The voyage took place from Hobart (TAS) to Hobart between March 14 and April 4, 2019.
Hydrology samples were collected from Niskin bottles sampled at various depths during Conductivity-Temperature-Depth (CTD) deployments. Parameters analysed were salinity, dissolved oxygen, phosphate, silicate, nitrate plus nitrite and ammonium.
This dataset has been archived at the CSIRO O&A Information and Data Centre (IDC) in Hobart. Additional information regarding this dataset is contained in the Voyage Report and Data Processing Report.
This data was collected by participants on the Marine National Facility (MNF) RV Investigator voyage IN2019_V02.
The data was processed by Christine Rees, Merinda McMahon and Jack McDonald (CSIRO O&A).
Data source: original field data.
Nutrient samples were analysed using segmented flow SEAL AA3 and results are in µmol/L. In-house methods SOP 001, SOP 002, SOP 003 and SOP 004 were used to analyse nutrients.
Please cite the following paper when using Hydrochemistry data for silicate, phosphate, nitrate+nitrite (NOx) and nitrite analysis:

Salinities were analysed using Guildline 8400B Autosal Lab Salinometer and OSIL software. The salinometer was calibrated with IAPSO standard seawater P161. In-house method SOP 006 was used to analyse salinity, units are Practical Salinity Unit (PSU).
Dissolved Oxygens were analysed using Scripps UV titrator and software, units measured in ml/L and converted to µmol/L. Dissolved oxygen was analysed using in-house method SOP 005.
All data was processed with HyPro 5.7 on the ship.
Nutrient data decimal places within the CSV file; silicate is 1 decimal place, nitrite is 3 decimal places and NOx (nitrate + nitrite), phosphate and ammonium is 2 decimal places. Previously values below detection limit were set to zero; these values are now displayed as the measured value even if that is a negative value. Oxygen Data is displayed to 3 decimal places. Salinity data is displayed to 4 decimal places, prior to in2018_t01 voyage it was 3 decimal places in the csv file.
Data processing notes are in the processing report (in2019_v02_HYD_ProcessingReport.pdf).
