Scienceblog: News from the FS Meteor


From March 18th to July 23rd the research vessel FS Meteor is on a field trip again. She started in Lissabon and will cruise through the Faeroes Shetlands to Island. For the first time scientists from the KlimaCampus Hamburg will regularly report from board.

Cruise 87 of FS Meteor will focus on processes that affect carbon fluxes in the region of the north-western European continental slope and adjacent coastal and marginal seas (North Sea and Baltic Sea). On the first leg the scientists will mainly investigate the importance of winter convection on winter primary producers, fate of sinking biomass and the impact on the following spring bloom in distinct hydrographical regions in the north-eastern Atlantic and the northern North Sea.


This cruise is a component of the EU contribution to the International Opens external link in new windowBASIN program. It is sponsored by the German Research Foundation and the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
