Cruise description

This cruise was very successful despite many problems with the CTD and fewer days of operation than planned. Because of this, one Argo float could not be deployed for DFO/Institute to Ocean Sciences.
The highlight of the cruise was to sample a DMS Diurnal Cycle Experiment for a period of 28 hours, although the original plan was calling for 36 hours of sampling. The experiment consisted of sampling every two hours following the water mass as indicated by a drogue. The experiment went quite well despite the amount of work it created for the analysts.
The regular sampling done during this cruise was performed using a CTD, a Rosette, some X-Niskin bottles, and a Bongo. For further details see 2010-14_cruise_report.pdf in the Documents section.
