This NCEI Accession includes discrete bottle profile measurements of dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC), total alkalinity, CFCs, temperature, salinity, oxygen and nutrients obtained during the R/V Maria S. Merian cruise MSM60 in the South Atlantic Ocean on GO-SHIP Repeat Hydrography Section A10.5 (EXPOCODE 06M220170104) from 2017-01-04 to 2017-02-01. The Maria S Merian MSM60 expedition was the first basin-wide section across the South Atlantic following the SAMBA/SAMOC line at 34°30’S. The scientific program consisted of full water depth sampling (up to 5300m) using the CTD/O2/lADCP rosette system.
