Cruise description

This cruise was very successful. The June cruise is traditionally the "mooring cruise". In this case one mooring was deployed, and another one was first recovered then redeployed, all around Station Papa. A University of Washington Seaglider was also recovered and replaced by another one. The "733" (Rigid Hull Inflatable boat) was used in many instances for surface sampling. Thanks to the very clement weather, all stations were visited. The sampling done during this cruise was performed using a CTD, a Rosette, some Go-flos, and a Bongo. For further details see the Cruise_report.pdf in the Documents section.
