MedSeA oceanographic cruise along the Mediterranean Sea

Source: MedSeA

On the 2nd of May 2013 the MedSeA oceanographic cruise along the Mediterranean Sea departed from Cadiz. The major campaign objective is to conduct a comprehensive water column sampling from each of the basins of the Mediterranean Sea.  There will be sediment core sampling, plankton tows and aereosol collectors. The cruise has two legs: from Cadiz to Heraklion and from Heraklion to Barcelona (May 2, 2013 – June 2 – 2013). We will also deploy 4 bioArgo floats.  The MedSeA campaign is also part of an international program GEOTRACES that aims to characterize and study the seawater dissolved elements.

The MedSeA oceanographic cruise is supported by the Spanish Ministerio de Ciencia e Innovación (MICINN). We will sail with the research vessel Ángeles Alvariño of the Instituto Español de Oceanografía (IEC).
