Abstract

The RRS James Clark Ross makes meteorological measurements around Antarctica during the austral summer, in the Arctic during the boreal summer and in the Atlantic during passages\ud between the two poles. In May 2010, as part of the WAGES project the ships existing systems were complemented by the AutoFlux system (Yelland et al., 2009) to measure the transfers of momentum, heat and CO2 between the atmosphere and the ocean. Similarly, a commercial directional wave radar "WAVEX" made by the Norwegian firm MIROS was installed.\ud \ud This report describes the metadata for the WAGES instrumentation deployed on the RRS James Clark Ross between May 2010 and September 2011. Sensor serial numbers, dates of sensor changes andproblems with sensors are contained in the associated tables
