The cruise (KM1713) transited from Seward, AK to Honolulu, HI from 3-26 September 2017 onboard the R/V Kilo Moana. Six extended stations (Stn), three in subpolar waters (Stn 1 at 55°N, Stn 2 at 50°N, and Stn 3 at 46°N), one in the transition zone between subpolar and subtropical waters (Stn 4 at 42°N), and two in the subtropical gyre (Stn 5 at 34°N, and Stn 6 at 24°N) were occupied for 2-3 day periods during which continuous measurements of conductivity, temperature, O2, O2/Ar and beam attenuation were measured continuously on surface seawater supplied via the ships’ intake line and using CTD profiles of conductivity, temperature, pressure, oxygen, and the particulate beam attenuation coefficient conducted at ~2-hr intervals. An autonomous profiling float was deployed for ~ 2 days at four stations, retrieving CTD and oxygen profiles at approximately 3-hour intervals. Another float with same mission design was deployed near station ALOHA (22.45° N, 158° W) during July 2017 to provide mixed-layer averaged O2 near station 6. When available, the ship followed the trajectory of the profiling float, yielding a near-Lagrangian sampling strategy with the aim to minimize horizontal mixing effects.
