BODC Cruise Metadata Report for RV Pelagia (64PE) cruise PE093

Introduction

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

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RV Pelagia (64PE) cruise PE093
Short name PE093
Objectives and Narrative The benthic subprogramme within OMEX focuses on transport and modes of transport of organic matter from the shelf to the deep, and on questions as how the differences in organic carbon input to the seafloor at different locations is reflected in the geochemistry (early diagenesis) and biology (abundances and activities of macro- and meiofauna, and of heterotrophic bacteria).
