Cruise description

This cruise was very successful. The June cruise is traditionally the "mooring cruise", and so two moorings were recovered and two were deployed, all around Station Papa. We also deployed two Argo floats for IOS/DFO and one Iridium float for the University of Washington. The in situ pumping for Roger François group at UBC went quite well and was well complemented by the Multiple Plankton Sampler. The sampling done during this cruise was performed using a CTD, a Rosette, some Go-flos, a Bongo and a Multiple Plankton Sampler. For further details see Post_cruise_report.pdf in the Documents section.
