BODC Cruise Metadata Report for RRS John Biscoe cruise JB10 Leg 1

Introduction

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

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RRS John Biscoe cruise JB10 Leg 1
Short name JB10 Leg 1
Objectives and Narrative The main objectives of this leg was:
Studies of the composition and distribution of zooplankton and microplankton.

On this leg much of the time was spent on setting up, calibrating and repairing the various equipment and instruments. 6 stations were occupied with profiling transects run between them. At the stations diurnal Longhurst-Hardy-Plankton-Recorder series were carried out along with vertical profiling and plankton sampling.
