This cruise is planned in the framework of the Jerico-Next project (http://www.jerico-ri.eu/). The main objective is to improve and innovate the cooperation in coastal observatories in Europe. Within several tasks of this project the study of plankton biodiversity is a central point. During this scientific cruise focus will lay on sampling this taxonomic group using different sensors and methods. Both discrete samples and samples from the underway system will be taken.
