Research vessel: Pt. Sur
Dates: 9/11/2016 - 9/16/2016
Port: Cocodrie, LA
Chief Scientist(s): Dr. Vernon Asper, Dr. Arne-R. Diercks

The main goals of the Fall 2016 Pt. Sur cruise are to recover and redeploy the mooring at station OC26 in the Gulf, and recover the nearby lander. That lander will be deployed at GC767 along with 3 “mini landers” from UNC. In addition to this work, we will do some extended pumping/filtration of hydrocarbons, test a new imaging and lander deployment system, obtain some marine snow abundance profiles, and acquire samples for shipboard laboratory analyses.
