UNOLS cruise request:

The May cruise is the first for the NSF OCE funded Ocean Acidification, Hypoxia and Warming project also known by the project researchers as "OA Propagule".  The cruise was timed such that samples would be collected soon after the spring bloom.

During the cruise, investigators plan to collect CTD profile data, including dissolved oxygen, bottom water with Niskin bottles deployed on the CTD rosette, MC800 multicores, and Soutar boxcores from the "Mud Patch" study site. The study area is located on the continental shelf approximately 50 nm south of Martha's Vineyard (40.43 N 70.5 W).

The original cruise event log and other underway data submitted by the vessel operator will be available from the NSF R2R cruise catalog.
