Introduction

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

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RV Belgica (11BE) cruise BG9506
Short name BG9506
Objectives and Narrative Belgian Global Change Impulse Programme and OMEX Biogeochemistry Programme. MUMM contribution - sampling stations, trackplot, SCTD profiles and horizontal profiles of salinity, temperature and fluorescence.

Belgica sailed in the direction of the planned OMEX1, OMEX2 and OMEX3 stations but due to bad weather it was not possible to take SCTD tasks. The carousel water sampling system was also damaged by incoming waves, this was later repaired. Belgica headed to the La Chapelle Bank but the weather conditions were still too bad for SCTD profiling. So the ship then headed for Bayonne and underway stations 1 and 2 were sampled. Belgica berthed at Bayonne 10th - 12th March. Stations 3-6 were sampled on the La Chapelle Bank and on the Meriadzek Terrace. Belgica then sailed for Zeebrugge.

Only 6 stations were sampled with 16 SCTD casts taken.
