  • Description:
    "This document contains project instructions for EX-17-09, planned to depart Honolulu on October 16, 2017 and arrive in Balboa, Panama on November 11, 2017, for a total of 27 days at sea. Operations for this cruise include transit mapping and CTD operations along the ClarionClipperton Fracture Zone and the transit track between Honolulu, Hawaii and Balboa, Panama. Operations will include the use of the ship's deep water mapping systems (Kongsberg EM302 multibeam sonar, EK60 split-beam fisheries sonars, Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (ADCPs), and Knudsen 3260 chirp sub-bottom profiler sonar), and the ship's high-bandwidth satellite connection for hourly data transfer, real-time ship to shore communications, real-time sonar control from shore, and real-time video streaming of sonar screens and ship's cameras. The objective of the CTD operations is to test the operation of a newly developed N2 sensor and measure biologically produced excess nitrogen (N2 gas produced as a result of denitrification processes) in the Eastern Tropical North Pacific (ETNP) Oxygen Minimum Zone (OMZ) located in international waters of the eastern Pacific"--Page [3].
