PurposeResearch
ObjectivesAMT (2007-2012) will include five transects between the UK and the Falkland Islands collecting core hydrographic, chemical, ecological and optical data. Many of these measurements will be made in underway mode (either via towed instruments or those connected to a non-toxic surface seawater supply onboard) with minimum personnel intervention. However depth profiles of CTD+water samples will also be taken at daily pre-dawn and mid-morning stations to a maximum of 1000m.
The physical environment will be characterised using vessel mounted ADCP and towed undulating profiler (MVP or SeaSoar) data (McDonagh et al., 2006). Boundaries between upper ocean water masses, edges of eddies and unstable fronts, will be determined by the position of current jets and compared with near real-time satellite images and upper ocean density sections.
The depth distribution of inorganic nutrients (nitrate, nitrite, ammonia, phosphate and silicate) will be measured using standard auto-analytical and sensor techniques (Woodward et al., 1999; Johnson & Coletti, 2002) in order to determine the depth of the nitracline and its impact on plankton production (Maranon et al., 2000). The distribution of other limiting nutrients (e.g. iron) and their atmospheric deposition pathways would be ideal subjects for SOFI collaboration.
We will deploy a novel suite of optical- and video-based in-line instruments capable of characterising the whole phyto- and zooplanktonic size range from 1μm to 10mm diameter (FlowCam + LiZa). This suite will produce continuous real-time size-distributed biomass data on organisms classified by functional group. Phytoplanton community abundance and composition will be determined from high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) analysis of pigments (Mantoura and Llewellyn 1983, Barlow et al. 1997) and the matrix factorisation software CHEMTAX (Mackey et al. 1996). The UV photoprotecting compounds, mycosporine-like amino
