    Other comments and information:
CTD with rosette sampler (24 10-l bottles)
with space underneath to attach optics
package. The optics package has a separate
power/signal wire that is fed overboard
and brought in by hand. The optics package
belongs to Dr. Roesler of the U. of Conn.
with additional instruments of Dr. Coble
of USF. The CTD we used on the Seward
Johnson had a separate protective ring
2 1/2 feet below the rosette. The optics
package fit in there very nicely. A similar
arrangement is needed.

A separate winch with 1/4 inch conducting wire
leading over an A-frame with dedicated
block for use with the Texas A&M optics
packagge (Drs. Gardner and Walsh). It
weighs about 400 lbs and is approx 10'
tall x 3' x 3'. The TAMU Optics package
needs to be wheeled into a covered area
between profiles, in order to service

A separate block on an A-frame of crane
over the stern. Wire will lead through
a guide block to a high-speed capstan.
This is for use with the OSU CTD/Optics
package. this package weighs about 250
lbs and is 5' tall x 4' diameter. We
will bring our own dacron/conducting wire
which we figure 8 into a case.

Dr. Gregg of UW has contacted you regarding
his ADCP needs. This requires putting
transducers in the well. He operates
his own microstructure packagge over
the stern. This requires welding on a
small winch.

We will operate the CTD, Texas A&M, and
OSU packages, as well as a WHOI hand-
deployed radiometer, sequentially during
daylight hours. Doing this efficiently
requires that each device has its dedicated
block and wire as described above. At
night the UW team will operate their micro-
structure profiler.

Dr. Sosik of WHOI will be deploying and
retrieving productivity moorings once
a week. Dr. Gardner will deploy a
sediment trap at the beginning of the
cruise and retrieve it at the end
