Observations 
Parameters

Ammonium and ammonia concentration parameters in water bodies; Phytoplankton taxonomic biomass in water bodies; Particulate total and organic carbon concentrations in the water column; Chlorophyll pigment concentrations in water bodies; Wind strength and direction; Particulate total and organic nitrogen concentrations in the water column; Nitrate concentration parameters in the water column; Phytoplankton taxonomic abundance in water bodies; Phosphate concentration parameters in the water column; Uptake of other nutrients in the water column; Primary production in the water column; Salinity of the water column; Density of the water column; Temperature of the water column; Concentration of proteins in the water column; Particulate total and organic phosphorus concentrations in the water column

Instruments

Fluorometers; CTD; discrete water samplers; autoanalysers; liquid scintillation counters

Description 
Summary

The cruise consisted of seven longitudinal transects with 12 sampling stations. Vertical profiles of salinity, temperature and density were measured at every station during all transects, profiles of nutrients and biological parameters were measured during two transects only. Continuous measurements of salinity, temperature and chlorophyll were made in the depth of 5 m during all transects.
