Project Description and Facility Requirements
Project Web Page:
Summary of Field Work: The cruises for this project involve finding coastal phytoplankton blooms and then drifting with them for three days (i.e., Langrangian sampling). We will sample with round-the-clock CTD casts. We will also deploy drifting sediment traps and primary production arrays (stable 13C). Three cruises are requested: Gulf of Maine (Endeavor), Orgeon coast (Oceanus) and Sargasso Sea (Atlantic Explorer).
Summary of Facility Requirements: We will need CTD, A-frame for sediment trap and primary production array deployment, sufficient deck-space for incubators in a location that does not obstruct sunlight.
