Principal objective was the study of krill in the South Georgia area,
(1) Behaviour and aspects of swarming during two drift surveys
(2) Interaction ...
This was a winter cruise. The primary objective was to investigate
krill physiology and behaviour at a time when concentrations of the
primary food source (phytoplankton) were low. However, low krill ...
Leg 3 of RRS John Biscoe cruise JB10 was conceived primarily for the
deployment and recovery of current meter moorings from the northern
Weddell and southern Scotia Seas. During the cruise, CTD and ...
