PurposeResearch
ObjectivesThe MedBlack GEOTRACES leg 1 on RV Pelagia started 14 May 2013 departing from Lisbon and ended in Istanbul on 05 June 2013. The GA04 GEOTRACES transect was sampled in a combined effort involving two research vessels. Both research vessels followed a similar cruise track. The Spanish research vessel B/O Angeles Alvariño concentrated on i) large volume sampling for the sampling of (radio) isotopic elements, ii) include biological systems, and iii) the carbon system. The NIOZ research vessel Pelagia concentrated on the distribution of the GEOTRACES trace elements and isotopes (TEIs) and many other trace elements and isotopes that necessitates trace metal clean sampling. A large volume non trace metal clean CTD system allowed for sampling of many additional parameters as the carbon system and algae pigments. We occupied 37 full depth stations. Due to complications regarding permissions to sample in territorial waters of the many North African, Asian and European countries, it proved impossible to occupy a cross over station with the GA04S cruise track of the Spanish research vessel B/O Angeles Alvariño.
