The AMT3 cruise took place between 16 September and 25 October 1996, when the RRS James Clark Ross sailed from the Falkland Islands to the UK. 

The objectives of the cruise remained similar to the first two transects, and included:

  • To improve our understanding of the relationship between physical processes and biological production
  • Identify, define and quantify latitudinal changes in biogeochemical provinces
  • Determine phytoplankton characteristics and photosynthetic parameters
  • Identify nutrient regimes and their role in biogeochemical cycles
  • Characterise plankton community structure, including the accurate determination of carbon values
  • Relate the partial pressure of carbon dioxide in surface waters with the biological production
  • Acquire data for the calibration of remotely sensed observations
  • Secondary validation of remotely sensed products
  • Interpret basin-scale remote sensing observations
  • Develop models that enable the interpretation of satellite imagery in terms of total water column properties
