Cruise description

This cruise was very successful despite problems with the main CTD Hawboldt winch. All stations were visited, all casts performed, and the mooring work was completed with only one very small mishap. One major difference from regular Line P cruises is that no DMS/DMSP samples were collected. Also, the UBC MIMS (Membrane Inlet Mass Spectrometer) was not on board.
We deployed three MetOcean drifters for DFO/IOS, two Iridium drifters for University of Washington, three weather buoys for Environment Canada, and two Carbon Explorer drifters at station P16 that were recovered on the way back.
The regular sampling done during this cruise was completed using a CTD, a Rosette, a Bongo and a Multiple Plankton Sampler (MPS) to collect zooplankton to 2000 dbar at 3 stations (1250 dbar at P4).
For further details see 2013-17_cruise_report.pdf in the Documents section.
