BODC Cruise Metadata Report for RV Pelagia (64PE) cruise PE95B

Introduction

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

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RV Pelagia (64PE) cruise PE95B
Short name PE95B
Objectives and Narrative The aims:
1) To understand, define, quantify and model the organic and inorganic partice transport and the accumulation, diagenetic and burial processes and fluxes and the time scales involved, in relation to the oceanographic conditions and benthic boundary layer dynamics along shelf-slope-abyssal plain transects in contrasting environments.
2) To relate benthic community development and composition to settling, quantity and quality of organc matter input, to benthic boundary layer dynamics and redox conditions at and in the seabed, and to the seasonal variability of particulate organic matter input.
