BODC Cruise Metadata Report for RRS John Biscoe cruise JB04

Introduction

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

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RRS John Biscoe cruise JB04
Short name JB04
Objectives and Narrative The primary objective was to investigate krill physiology and behaviour at a time when concentrations of the primary food source (phytoplankton) were low. However, low krill populations were encountered and an alternative study of ichthyoplankton was used to occupy the remaining cruise time.
