BODC Cruise Metadata Report for RRS Discovery (74E3) cruise D182

Introduction

This report collates information from the BODC cruise inventory and oceanographic databases. It presents

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RRS Discovery (74E3) cruise D182
Short name D182
Objectives and Narrative 1. To undertake semi-synoptic measurements of pO2 and pCO2 in surface water.
2. To study the vertical distribution of T-CO2, A-CO2 and pCO2, oxygen and nitrate in order to estimate the flux of these compounds in and out.
3. To measure the size distribution of phytoplankton at BOFS study sites and, in conjunction with zooplanktologists, to determine whether the predominant flow of carbon is through the microbial food web or through the metazoan zooplankton.
4. To determine the production of biomass by phytoplankton cells of different size through the euphotic zone.
5. To study the spatial distribution of biological and chemical properties of the euphotic zone and their relationship with physical structure.
