Cruise Info. 
Ship name (ship code)RV Belgica (11BE)

Cruise period1995-09-11 — 1995-09-19
StatusCompleted
Port of departureZeebrugge, Belgium
Port of returnLorient, France
ObjectivesBelgian Global Change Impuls Programme; OMEX Biogeochemistry Programme; Benthic Studies Programme. MUMM contribution - sampling stations, trackplort, SCTD profiles and horizontal profiles of salinity, temperature and fluorescence.

Aim:
To sample 11 stations from station 1 to the OMEX2 station.

The Belgica sampled stations 1-3 before being interrupted by bad weather. The planned stations 4-11 were therefore not sampled. It was decided to leave the area and sail to the Meriadzek Terrace area where two casts were taken at the new station 4. The new stations 5-11 were sampled at the the slope of the "Banc de la Chapelle".

11 stations sampled with 18 SCTD casts taken.
