RRS Discovery Cruise 222, Leg 2, 29 Aug-24 Sep 1996. BENGAL: High resolution temporal and spatial study of the BENthic biology and Geochemistry of a north-eastern Atlantic abyssal Locality

Record type: Monograph (Project Report)

Discovery Cruise 222 (Leg 2) was the first of a series of cruises within a 3-year contract (MAS3 CT950018), BENGAL, funded under the MAST III programme of the EU and running from February 1996. The contract will concentrate on a single north-eastern Atlantic abyssal locality centred on 48°50’N: 16°30’W and will study in detail changes in the benthic system over one 12-month period from March 1997 to March 1998, particularly in relation to the seasonal deposition of phytodetritus.

This cruise was a lead-in to this series, with the objective of obtaining baseline data from benthic and mid-water sampling gears and from both short and long-term deployed moorings/landers. It was also an opportunity to test and refine new experimental procedures in preparation for the detailed studies in 1997-98.
