Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RRS Discovery (74E3) cruise D267
Short name D267
Objectives and Narrative RRS Discovery cruise 267 was the fourth of four cruises supported by the NERC Marine Productivity (MarProd) thematic programme. The MarProd cruise series provided the main opportunity for data- and sample-gathering to address the overall programme goal, viz: "to develop coupled modelling and observation systems for the pelagic ecosystem, with emphasis on physical factors affecting zooplankton dynamics". The specific objectives of the fourth and final MarProd cruise are similar to those of the earlier cruises (D258, 262 and 264), namely:

1. To map the physical features of the survey region (Irminger Sea and parts of the Iceland Basin) in terms of water mass distribution, velocity field and mixed layer properties.
2. Collect water samples for plant pigment and microscopic analyses, to estimate the biomass of different taxonomic/functional groups of microplankton.
3. Measure high resolution profiles of inorganic nutrient concentrations.
4. Determine the 3D abundance of the mesoplankton of interest (primarily Calanus finmarchicus, but also Oithona spp.), and their planktivorous predators (primarily euphausid spp), obtaining material for further taxonomic, physiological and biochemical studies.

In addition, because this was the second winter cruise a number of other studies previously only undertaken on the spring and summer cruises were undertaken on this cruise to determine the closure winter baseline conditions. These studies covered:
* Oithona feeding experiments
* Oithona and Calanus egg production
* C/N and stable isotope ratios
* Primary productivity incubations
* Underway continuous sampling by, and station deployment of, a Fast Repetition rate fluorometer (FRRF), for comparison with primary production experiments.
