PurposeResearch
ObjectivesOriginally 25 stations were planned for leg 3 of the MedBlack GEOTRACES cruises. However, because we did not get permission to sample in French waters we could only sample 19 stations. As a consequence we did not sample in the Ligurian Sea. The participants boarded the RV Pelagia at 10:00 am on 25 July 2013. The Pelagia left Istanbul early in the afternoon for leg 3 of the MedBlack GEOTRACES cruises. The first station was on 27 July. All CTDs worked well at station 1. However, from station 8 onwards the CTD casts were plagued by communication problems between the CTD and the computer in the CTD control room. Due to this problems we missed 1 UCC CTD cast at station 16. All other stations and casts were nevertheless successfully sampled. A cubic meter container was filled with ultraclean 0.2 μm filtered surface seawater for Hans Slagter and Loes Gerringa on 7 August 2013 between 05:55 am UTC (after station 18) and 18:40 UTC before station 19. The weather conditions stayed good throughout the expedition. We arrived in Lisbon in the morning of 11 August.
