AMT13

This was the second in the series of cruises funded by a NERC Consortium Grant. The RRS James Clark Ross set sail from Immingham in the UK on 8 September 2003 and arrived in Stanley, Falkland Islands on 13 October 2003.  The principal scientist was Carol Robinson from the Plymouth Marine Laboratory.

The aims of the cruise were to sample the Mauritanian upwelling and southern gyre, thereby allowing data to be collected over a large range of plankton biomass, activity and community structure.
