Description 
Summary

The principal goal of the EU-CYCLOPS project is to investigate the role of phosphorous as a growth-limiting nutrient factor in the oligotrophic Levantine Basin. The role of the physical oceanographic investigations in this project is to study the hydrodynamic regime of the warm core eddy south of Cyprus in support the in-situ biogeochemistry experiments during the infusions of P and an inert tracer, SF6.
