PurposeResearch
ObjectivesThis cruise constitutes the first survey section as part of the US participation in GEOTRACES.

Pre-cruise planning focused around how to accomplish cruise objectives within the Knorr's berthing limits. A plan was developed that included a core group of "shared super-technicians" whose responsibilities included staging for and sampling of the trace-metal clean GO-FLO carousel, helping with the pumping casts, and deploying/retrieving and sampling the Niskin rosette. Sampling for properties such as stable isotopes, dissolved inorganic carbon, radiocarbon, etc. would be accomplished by designated cruise participants in addition to their own programmatic responsibilities. It was also agreed that standard hydrographic analyses (salinity, dissolved oxygen, and micromolar nutrients) would be carried out by the Ocean Data Facility (ODF) group, along with CTD data reduction and archiving, as well as primary data management operations. We felt that this latter function was extremely important for a GEOTRACES cruise from the viewpoint of metadata assembly and data submission requirements to BCO/DMO and ultimately to the GEOTRACES data assembly center at BODC.
