CalCOFI 1501NH winter cruise on RV New Horizon; 15 Jan - 8 Feb 2015. 100 stations were successfully occupied; sta 60.90 & a few net tows were cancelled due to high winds & rough seas. SCCOOS stations 80.0 50.5 & 85.4 35.8 were skipped. Refer to station activities for specific station work performed.
CTD notes: due to the inability of the CTD to power dual T, C, & O2 sensors after sta 64 (80.90), single T, C, & O2 data were collected on casts 65 -100. These include sta 80.100 and all stations north on Lines 77 - 60.
After the departure of 8 scientists & volunteers in Monterey, the CTD-rosette was programmed to trip 12 bottles. Refer to the CTD Summary Notes when they are available.
