PurposeResearch
ObjectivesFirst of a series of four cruises in the northern North Sea carried out between September and November 1998 as part of the EU-MAST III PROVESS (PROcesses of Vertical Exchanges in Shelf Seas) project. It aimed to provide the initial conditions prior to or during the onset of the cooling phase and stormy wind season.
Cruise objectives:
- to deploy an array of 18 moorings close to 59deg20'N, 1deg00'E to measure time-series of meteorological, hydrographical and chemical quantities for the duration of the experiment (September-November 1998).
- to assess the hydrographic conditions in the PROVESS study area in the northern North Sea by means of CTD-surveys including distributions of chlorophyll-fluorescence and turbidity.
- to perform biological and chemical sampling for phytoplankton, photosynthetic pigments, particulate organic matter and dissolved oxygen.
- to observe temporal changes of the stratification and of the nutrient situation during the first phase of the autumnal changes of the summer stratification.
- to study the turbulence regimes in the water column above, across and beneath the thermocline to derive turbulence parameters for modelling of the vertical mixing processes.
