Cruise description

This cruise was 100% successful. As well as doing our regular hydrographic and plankton work, using a CTD, a Rosette, some X-Niskin bottles, and a Bongo, we also deployed a mooring at Station Papa. This mooring is the first of many planned over the next several years in a long-term collaborative project involving scientists and technicians from Fisheries and Oceans Canada, NOAA, and the University of Washington.
Another special project of this cruise was the use of the Vertical Microstructure Profiling (VMP) instrument of Eric Kunze's from the University of Victoria.
Finally, this cruise also marked the beginning of a multi-year collaboration with Maurice Levasseur's group from Université Laval in Québec.
For further details about the mooring, the VMP, or the cruise in general see Post_cruise_report.pdf in the Documents section.
