 The hydrological properties and circulation along the TIP (Transport Indian Pacific) section between Java and Australia in September 2000 at the end of the southeast monsoon season are described. It is a reoccupation of the JADE (Java Australia Dynamic Experiment) sections carried out in August 1989 and in February 1992, which encompass the throughflow between the Pacific and the Indian oceans. The net geostrophic transport in September 2000 is of the same order as the August 1989 estimate. The results from the three occupations reveal that the seasonal and inter-annual variability is predominant and during the three cruises the transport evaluations capture the largest variability of the throughflow.
