NCEI Accession 0143398 includes discrete sample and profile data collected from KNORR in the North Atlantic Ocean, North Greenland Sea, Norwegian Sea, South Atlantic Ocean and Southern Oceans (> 60 degrees South) from 1972-07-18 to 1973-04-01 and retrieved during cruise GEOSECS Atlantic. These data include DELTA CARBON-14, DELTA HELIUM-3, DISSOLVED INORGANIC CARBON (DIC), DISSOLVED OXYGEN, HYDROSTATIC PRESSURE, NITRATE, NITRITE, Potential temperature (theta), RADIUM ISOTOPES, SALINITY, TOTAL ALKALINITY (TA), Tritium (Hydrogen isotope), WATER TEMPERATURE, phosphate and silicate. The instruments used to collect these data include CTD and bottle.

These data were collected by Taro Takahashi of Columbia University; Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory and Robert M. Key of Princeton University; Department of Geosciences; Program in Atmospheric and Ocean Sciences as part of the GEOSECS_Atlantic data set.
