Science Objectives

Mooring recoveries and sampling at 3 Barbados seep sites (El Pilar, Orenoque A, Orenoque B) plus MOCNESS tows and some mapping (multibeam, CHIRP).  We may add sample sites if we are able to undertake an advance SENRY survey in the region (pending request). Our aim would be to add new sites separated by as much as 150-200 km max along a depth gradient and along an isobath.  Use of SENTRY would allow us to undertake precision sampling of known sites, 1 to 1.5 days per station at each of 6 to 8 seep stations.  This is part of the Seep Connectivity Project funded by NSF to investigate historical and contemporary linkages among Barbados, Gulf of Mexico, and Blake Ridge seep species.
- changed The main objective is to conduct a hydrographic survey nominally along longitudes 66 W and 52W including shipboard CTD, ADCP, LADCP and Niskin bottle sampling of the water column.  This is part of the U.S. CLIVAR Carbon / Repeat Hydrography program that aims to identify changes in ocean properties and circulation through time. to Mooring recoveries and sampling at 3 Barbados seep sites (El Pilar, Orenoque A, Orenoque B) plus MOCNESS tows and some mapping (multibeam, CHIRP).  We may add sample sites if we are able to undertake an advance SENRY survey in the region (pending request).

We anticipate a two-leg mission, with a small-boat personnel exchange no later than 6 am on 8 June.

Note: We may choose to do Orenoque A and B first; details will depend on whether we get SENTRY time and on teh timing of the personnel exchange.

Science Activities

At each site:
1) Sub-bottom profiling to locate seep areas
2) MOCNESS tows for larval sampling
3) Mooring recoveries (current meter, 2 sediment/larval traps per mooring)
4) INtensive sampling os seep fauna for genetic and reproduction studies
- changed The hydrographic surveys will consist of approximately 180 full water column CTD/LADCP casts along the trackline.  Each cast will acquire up to 36 water samples on the upcast, which will be analyzed for salinity, oxygen, and nutrient concentrations.  Water samples will also be analyzed during the cruise for dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC), pH, total alkalinity and transient tracers (CFCs and SF6).  Additional water samples will be collected and stored for shore-based analysis of dissolved organic carbon (DOC), helium/tritium, 13C/14C, and chromophoric dissolved organic matter (CDOM).  Underway measurements will include surface pCO2, temperature, conductivity, dissolved oxygen, fluorescence, various meteorological parameters, and bathymetry. to
