Bob Pickart
Chief Scientist

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Massachusetts, USA

I am the Chief Scientist, which means that I coordinate all of the science activities for this cruise.

Hedinn Valdimarsson
Co-Principal Investigator

Marine Research Institute, Iceland

I am a physical oceanographer. My main job will be to assist with mooring work, both deployment and recovery.

Steingrímur Jónsson
Co-Principal Investigator

Marine Research Institute and University of Akureyri, Iceland

I am a physical oceanographer. My main job will be to assist with mooring work, both deployment and recovery.

Kjetil Våge
Co-Principal Investigator

University of Bergen, Norway



Laura de Steur
Co-Principal Investigator

Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research, Netherlands

I am a physical oceanographer at the Netherlands Institute for Sea Research (NIOZ) and I study the East Greenland Current. I join this cruise and contribute to the project by deploying 3 moorings. One of these moorings, which is a bottom frame with an ADCP and CTD, is specially designed for this cruise and will be placed on the shallow East Greenland shelf. It will be exciting to deploy this frame and see if we have collected good data with it in a year from now.

John Kemp
Mooring technician

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Massachusetts, USA

My primary job on the Knorr will be leading the deck operations for all the mooring deployments and recoveries. I have worked at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution for over 33 years, my background is in the design of prototype mooring systems, development of new mooring technologies and at-sea operations.

Jim Ryder
Mooring technician

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Massachusetts, USA



Dan Torres
Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler technician

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Massachusetts, USA

I'll be working with data from an instrument mounted on the ship (called an Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler or ADCP), which provides us with information of ocean current velocities. In addition I will help with the mooring recoveries.

Leon Wuis
Mooring technician

Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research, Netherlands

 

Carolina Nobre
CTD processing

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Massachusetts, USA

I am a research associate at WHOI and will be working mainly with the acquisition and processing of the ctd/ladcp data. I have been working with observational physical oceanography since 2006 when I obtained my bachelor's degree in oceanography. My master's degree allowed me to further explore climatological and model-derived data sets in order to better understand large-scale ocean processes. I am particularly interested  in data processing and visualization, allowing us to better understand different oceanographic processes.


Dave Wellwood
Hydrographer

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Massachusetts, USA

I will be working with the CTD, which include deployment and recovery of the CTD Rosette sampling package, sampling of Niskin bottles on rosette and analyzing for salinity content.


Lena Schulze
Conductivity-Temperature-Depth (CTD) team

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Massachusetts, USA

During the cruise I will be collecting data on the salinity and temperature of the seawater down through the water column. This will involve lowering a machine (called a CTD) into the water and recording how the temperature and salinity change as we get deeper.

Stine Hermansen
Conductivity-Temperature-Depth (CTD) team

University of Bergen, Norway

I'm a graduate student undertaking the final year of my masters degree in physical oceanography,at the universty of Bergen, Norway. My project is about the North Icelandic Irminger current, so I'm very interested in the area we are going to investigate. On this cruise I'm going to be on CTD watch.


Stefanie Zamorski
Conductivity-Temperature-Depth (CTD) team

University of Rhode Island, Graduate School of Oceanography, Narragansett, RI

I am finishing up my graduate degree in Physical Oceanography this December from URI.  I will be assisting with the collection of several vertical sections of temperature, salinity and density throughout the water column.  A CTD is a piece of oceanographic equipment used for determining physical properties and vertical structure of sea water.


Kate Lewis
Conductivity-Temperature-Depth (CTD) team

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Massachusetts, USA

During the cruise I will be collecting data on the salinity and temperature of the seawater down through the water column. This will involve lowering a machine (called a CTD) into the water and recording how the temperature and salinity change as we get deeper.


Ashley Stinson
Marine technician

University of Maine, USA

I will be acting as a marine technician aboard the R/V Knorr and will be assisting the scientific crew with collecting and processing data from deployed instruments.


Mirjam Glessmer
Conductivity-Temperature-Depth (CTD) team

University of Bergen, Norway

As a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Bergen in Norway, I focus my research on the freshwater and heat budgets of the Nordic Seas. On this cruise I will be part of the CTD-team measuring temperature and salinity of the water column, and I am very much looking forward to helping gain a better understanding of fluxes through Denmark Strait.
