Port of returnStanley, Falkland Islands (Malvinas)
PurposeResearch
ObjectivesDuring the 3 weeks prior to JR161 the JCR was primarily engaged in logistical duties with limited time allocated to science activities. Forty eight hours were allocated to AFI16-16 for larval fish sampling using the RMT8 and neuston net. A further 6 days were allocated to mooring deployments, the western core box and acoustic calibrations. A PCO2 analyser was also operated during this leg of the cruise. Sea conditions were generally rough during the 3 weeks and science time was lost from all science activities.
