XCTD data to observe the ACC polar front in the Southern Ocean in 2015

To measure the vertical profiles of temperature and salinity in the ACC (Antarctic circumpolar current), an intensive oceanographic survey was conducted during 7 days from 2015 Janurary 3 to 9 by IB/RV ARAON and to increase the spatial resolution for temperature and salinity, XCTD probes were used at 28 stations between regular hydrographic stations. To investigate the variability in spatial and temporal distribution of water temperature and salinity in the ACC (Antarctic circumpolar current).
