2018 SCOPE Falkor Cruise




The Falkor cruise will build on the observations of the SCOPE expeditions conducted during 2015-2017 by looking at diel variability associated with the deep chlorophyll maximum and quantifying the impact of mesoscale eddies on the ecology and functioning of the North Pacific Subtropical Gyre. An unique aspect to the expedition is the use of Long-Range Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (LRAUVs) which will be integrated into the science operations in conjunction with other oceanographic equipment.
