Summary: 1504NH Spring CalCOFI cruise on RV New Horizon; 04 - 20 Apr 2015, 70 stations (61 standard & 9 SCCOOS) successfully occupied. Stations 86.7 110, 83.3 110, 83.3 100.0 were cancelled to improve coastal station coverage will remaining shiptime. Stas 86.7 70.0 & 83.3 60.0 were cancelled due to bad weather, station work not possible. A second CTD cast was performed at 76.7 70 to collect Fukushima seawater samples from 0-600m.
