PurposeResearch
ObjectivesThe UK component of this cruise aboard RVIB Nathaniel B Palmer to the Amundsen Sea involved the deployment of NERC's autonomous underwater vehicle (Autosub-III) on six missions beneath Pine Island Glacier to study how warm Circumpolar Deep Water gets beneath the glacier and how it determines the melt rate of the glacier.

The specific aims of the project were:
Map the seabed beneath the glacier
Map the underside of the glacier
Determine where and how heat is transferred from the inflowing CDW to the outflowing ice-ocean boundary layer.

To do this Autosub-III was equipped with the following instrumentation: Seabird CTD, with dual C and T sensors plus DO sensor and transmissometer; Simrad multi-beam echosounder; upward-looking RDI 300 kHz ADCP; downward-looking RDI 150 kHz ADCP. Unusually light sea ice conditions allowed the ship to access Pine Island Bay during the early stages of the cruise. Work commenced with a successful test mission (M427) run on 17-18/01/09. Between 20 and 25/01/09 the first four science missions (M428-431) were run, but the vehicle sustained damage during a collision with the ice on M431. The multi-beam echosounder was oriented up for these missions. Following repairs, a successful test mission (M432) was run on 27/01/09, and on 28-30/01/09, the final two science missions (M433-434) were completed. The multi-beam echosounder was oriented down for these missions. Total track length was 887 km (taking 167 hours) of which 510 km (taking 94 hours) were beneath the ice shelf.

The trace metal component of this cruise was part of the DYNALIFE project studying the interplay of iron limitation and dynamic irradiance in governing phytoplankton distribution in the Ross Sea.

Iron (Fe) limitation of the algal communities in the Southern Ocean is now well documented. Moreover, much of the Fe is bound to organic complexes, so-called ligands. Ligands can increase solubility of Fe, but the effect on biological availability is unclear. In addition, phytoplankton Fe demand varies as a function of irradiance. Thus, the Fe needs of phytoplankton can change dependent on their light environment with great Fe requirements necessary to maintain growth in deeply mixed water columns and less Fe required by phytoplankton found in shallowly mixed water columns.

The main hypothesis of the proposed research is: The interaction between Fe limitation and dynamic irradiance governs phytoplankton distributions in the Southern Ocean. For the NBP0901 cruise, five research questions were investigated in different natural phytoplankton assemblages at various stages of a phytoplankton bloom:

1. What is the carbon uptake physiology of the phytoplankton?
2. What are the photosynthesis versus irradiance characteristics of the phytoplankton?
3. What is the extent of damage caused by photoinhibition when phytoplankton reside near the surface?
4. What are characteristics and quantities of dissolved Fe and Fe bound to natural ligands
5. Is Fe bound to artificial ligands accessible to phytoplankton?
