  Project Information  
Project Title: Collaborative Research: Shelfbreak frontal dynamics: mechanisms of upwelling, net community production, and ecological implications Project Status: Submitted
Principal Investigator: Dennis J. McGillicuddy, WHOI Project Institution: WHOI
Project ID: 105432 Version #: 2
Date Submitted: 8/12/2016 10:37:00 AM Created By: Dennis J. McGillicuddy
Date Last Modified: 6/30/2018 7:21:00 AM URI Serial #: None
Funding Agencies: NSF/OCE/BIO - 1657803 - Funded
Summary of Field Work: CTD transects across the shelfbreak front in the vicinity of the Pioneer Array.
Summary of Facility Requirements: Standard hydrographic sampling.
Summary of other requirements and comments: We have a mission-critical need for an uncontaminated seawater flow-through system that (1) does not damage plankton (e.g. diaphragm pump) and (2) is sufficiently bubble-free and/or de-bubbled for dissolved gas measurements.

We will also utilized a towed Video Plankton Recorder and a MOCNESS net system.
