A couple of years ago I delivered data from the following German cruises in the tropical Atlantic to the WOCE/CLIVAR data center: 06BE200011 06MT200206 35A3200304 06BE200305 06MT200407 The data were embargoed until 2006, but should be free now. I can find the file information for the above mentioned cruises on the CDIAC server, but I cannot find the files for download. It would be fine if you could provide the data files for downloading.
Since my initial inquiry to you, I heard back from R. Steinfeldt regarding this cruise. His reply also included information about other cruises, so the answer for this cruise is terse, but sufficient and quoted: -M53, leg 3 Only CFCs, hydrography and some bottle oxygen and salinity (for calibration of the CTD sensors) were measured on that cruise. The data set you got from me is the complete one. Subsequently, I went to the Meteor web site and downloaded the cruise report; The abstract and specific report for this leg are attached. The bottom line, this is all there is for 06MT53_3. This cruise will be part of CARINA so at some point you will get another copy of this same data in my format (since I'll never remember this conversation). I checked the flags in Reiner's file and they are OK. There were a few flags which I might have set as 3 rather than 2, but these were borderline so no alterations were made to the flags sent. I've attached my README file for this cruise which may have a bit of metadata you don't have. 1/15/07 Initialized README file Meteor cruise 06MT53_3 6/7-7/4/2002 109 stations with 24 place Rosette Chief Scientist -M.

"Details about the 1990-1994 data as well as the measurement techniques and intercomparisons are given in Rhein et al. (1995;1998), and Andrie et al. (1998, 2002). Both sections, the 35°W and the 5°S section have been sampled during METEOR cruises M14 (October 1990), M16 (June 1991), M22 (November 1992), M27 (March 1994), M47 (March 2000), M53 (June 2002) , the CITHER 1 cruise (March 1993). The data from October – November 2000 were taken during two subsequent cruises with the german research vessel SONNE (cruises S151 and S152), the data from June 2002 were taken during cruise M53/2 with RV METEOR."
