Project Description and Facility Requirements
Project Web Page:
Summary of Field Work: Three cruises to sample larval distributions, collect brood stock, and deploy/recover bottom collectors and instruments near cold methane seeps in the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Continental Margin. The goal is to determine the depths where larvae disperse, to inform biophysical models of connectivity, and to determine if larval processes limit the transport of seep larvae around the Florida peninsula.
Summary of Facility Requirements: All three cruises will use Alvin or Jason, and two of the cruises require Sentry with the SyPRID plankton sampler for precision sampling of larval populations in the water column.
Summary of other requirements or comments: On the ship, we need laboratory space with sufficient seated table space to accommodate up to 10 people with microscopes. One of two cold rooms to hold samples while they are being sorted, and cultures of embryos for the duration of the cruises. Fume hood for fixation of samples with glutaraldehyde, formaldehyde and DMSO.
