PurposeResearch
ObjectivesAMT13 is the second in the new series of Atlantic Meridional Transect cruises, funded as a NERC consortium project, and is building on the successes and format developed by Plymouth Marine Laboratory in pioneering the first eleven of these types of cruises.
This cruise will transect through both the North and South Atlantic gyre systems and the NW African upwelling with the aim of understanding the physical and chemical structures that make up these ocean systems and how they interact with the atmosphere.
