BODC Cruise Metadata Report for RV Belgica (11BE) cruise BG9522

Introduction

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

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RV Belgica (11BE) cruise BG9522
Short name BG9522
Objectives and Narrative Belgian Global Change Impulse Programme; OMEX Biogeochemistry Programme; Benthic Studies Programme. MUMM contribution - sampling stations, trackplot, SCTD profiles and horizontal profiles of salinity, temperature and fluorescence. This cruise combined the OMEX biochemistry programme and benthic studies programme. The latter studies the spatial structure in the hyperbenthic communities of the North Sea.

The ship sampled station 12 on the Meriadzek Terrace and then sailed 40 miles to the north-east and sampled stations 13-19. Stations 20-25 were sampled in the English Chnnel on the way to Zeebrugge.

13 stations were sampled with 15 SCTD casts.
