Arrival port & date:April 9, 2003
Op area:Upper continental shelf of western Turkey and middle of the western gyre
Lat/Lon:Can't give exact coordinates until we see Satellite images just before leaving
Depth range:1-bottom
    Will the vessel be operating within 200 NM of a foreign country?
    Which country?
    Are visas or special travel documents required?

Funding agency:
      NSF
      ONR/Navy
Specify:Expect small additional funds from ONR

Grant or contract number: OCE0220686

    Science objectives/activities planned:
1) Choose a site on the upper Turkish slope using multibeam & ADCP
2) Test our instruments
3) Deploy bottom-mounted ADCP
4) Sample with depth-cycling towed body, microstructure profilers, and rosette casts (Ukranian chemists)
5) Transit to middle of western gyre taking microstructure profiles and rosette casts en route
6) Repeat sampling in #4 for about a week
7) Return directly to work site on slope and repeat sampling
8) Move to slope off mouth of Bosphorus and begin towed body survey of Bosphorus plume, moving slowly eastward
9) Return to port, offload equipment and most people
10) Return to slope site and map carefully with multibeam
