Cruise description

This cruise went really smoothly all along, right from loading day. We had a couple of days of rougher weather but all in all it was good. The NOAA mooring work also went without any problem. All we missed during the whole cruise was one ring net cast at P8, and no bongo cast was done at P20. On the other hand we did some extra work. We deployed eight surface drifters for NOAA between P17 and P26, and six "Sponge-Bob" and three OSKER drifters at P26 for IOS. We also recovered a BioArgo float for MBARI north-east of P25. More details can be found in the cruise report (Documents section).
The regular sampling was completed during this cruise using a CTD, a Rosette, the Bongo, and the Ring net.
The Trace Metal sampling was performed by using the Go-flo bottles.
For further details see 2019-006_cruise_report.pdf in the Documents section.
