Arrival port & date:1 Oct 2002
Op area:Oregon coast out to 85 nm
Lat/Lon:42-45N, 124-126.1 W
Depth range:surface to 1010 m
    Will the vessel be operating within 200 NM of a foreign country?
    Which country?
    Are visas or special travel documents required?

Funding agency:
      NSF
Specify:GLOBEC is jointly funded by NSF and NOAA; CTD/rosette work is funded by NSF, Zooplankton sampling is funded by NOAA

Grant or contract number: OCE-0000733

    Science objectives/activities planned:
To determine physical, plankton and nutrient/chemical conditions
over the continental margin for climate change studies in NE Pacific;
to deploy drifters.

Hydrographic sampling on five zonal sections crossing the continental
margin, with CTD/rosette casts, MOCNESS tows (1-m opening), vertical
tows with a small zooplankton net (half-meter diameter), underway
tows of HTI acoustics across shelf and slope, continuous underway
operation of ADCP, and underway monitoring ship's intake and
meteorological variables. The list of station locations is attached.

WHOI shipboard scientific instrumentation desired:
    12 kHz Transducer
Oxygen Titration Apparatus
Refrigerator
Chest Freezer
CTD/Rosette System
10-liter Niskin Bottles

    Other vehicle-related equipment (list):
    Science equipment to be installed on vehicle:
    Electronic equipment used in the ALVIN personnel sphere:
    Other comments and information:
- planning to use MOCNESS on copper conductor of 0.68 fiber cable
- need sliprings for both MOCNESS and CTD/rosette;
- request dual T/C sensors on CTD (with separate pumps and ducts);
- if possible, mount T/C sensors so that intake is pointing down
and near the bottom of package
- we request that CTD/rosette be equipped with fluorometer,
transmissometer, oxygen sensor, PAR sensor
- request Beckman fluorometer for ship's intake
- request laboratory salinometer for analysis of salinity samples
- Use ship's intake continuously for Temperature, Salinity, Fluorescence
- sampling on NH Line (at 44.7N) has highest priority
- sampling on CR Line (at 41.9 N) has second priority
- desirable to sample zooplankton at night when possible
- CTD/rosette casts are to a maximum depth of 1010 m, or to
within 5-10% of the bottom over shelf and upper slope
