Description

1. in-situ filtration sampling at selected deptphs and locations between Bermuda and Woods Hole;

2. in-situ tests of the Longhurst-Hardy Plankton Recorder (LHPR) system using SCUBA;

3. studies of the phytoplankton, zooplankton, and fish of Gulf Stream rings with emphasis on spatial patterns of phytoplankton and hydrographic factors;

4. tests of the newly constructed Multiple Opening/Closing Net and Environmental System (MOCNESS);

5. studies of bird migration patterns;

6. studies to examine differences in gene frequencies in fish across physical-chemical stress gradients;

7. analyses of mesopelagic fish blood for differences in ionic concentrations.

 

The positions are not the cruise track.  The positions here are station locations for zooplankton tows.
