ObjectivesStation 14 was reached on August 3, 2005 at 11.25 CEST (UTC+2). At this and the following stations conductivity, salinity and water temperature were measured along the whole water column to a maximum depth of 29 m with a probe (ME SM-24). Subsequently one sample with a 2m-beam-trawl was taken. Until the end of the day five stations were sampled (14, 13a, 4, 3, 5). Work had to be stopped on the next day because of strong winds. At the following day (August 5, 2005) eight stations (6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 17) could be sampled, in supplement to the CTD and trawl a mini-corer for sampling Meiofauna was used on station 8. Work was continued on the next day (August 6, 2005) from 07.00 on and 9 stations were sampled (18, 20, 16, 22, 15, 23, 26, 21, 28). Because of increasing wind work was paused for the next day (August 7, 2005). As the weather was not to change for the following 24 hours and maybe further, it was decided on August 7 evening that work was to be halted and the vessel headed back to the German Bight for further sampling. in the outer German Bight a sample with the Minicorer was taken after a CTDmeasurement. The Helgoland trench was reached on August 8, 2005 at 16.20. After a CTD-measurement the Beam Trawl was deployed once. The aim of this work was to collect epibenthos-material in order to complement to lifecycle studies of decapod crustaceans of the German Bight. After this, the vessel headed back towards Helgoland, which was reached on August 8, 2005 at 20.20. The vessel headed back to her home port Wilhelmshaven on August 10, 2004 at 08.00 local time. On the way back sampling for foreshore fauna was undertaken off the Island of Wangerooge with one trawl sample. The vessel reached Wilhelmshaven on the same day at 13.40.
