PurposeResearch
ObjectivesBODC hosts the GEOTRACES International Data Assembly Centre (GDAC), with the primary role of creating a database of all key GEOTRACES parameters measured during the GEOTRACES programm and GEOTRACES International Polar Year cruises.

The research expedition was carried out on board the R/V Professor Khromov in 2007 summer to early autumn. The purpose for the cruise was to quantitatively clarify the physical, chemical and biological processes which occur in the Sea of Okhotsk. This expedition is a collaboration between Far Eastern Regional Hydrometeorological Research Institute (FERHRI), Russia, and the Institute of Low Temperature Sciences, Hokkaido University, Japan. Especially this expedition focused on to sedimentary iron transport processes from northwestern continental shelf of the Sea of Okhotsk to western subarctic Pacific.
