The JC165 cruise returns from the PAP-SO

August, 2018

The JC165 cruise to the PAP-SO successfully deployed a new suite of sensors in June.

Sensors were recovered and calibrated and the new sensors were calibrated before deployment and immediately started telemetering data back to NOC.

We were a mixed group of ‘old hands’ and new enthusiasts and between us we extended existing data sets and starting new ones.

As well as the PAP1 mooring there was an extensive benthic component – of Deep-sea ecology; via photographs, traps and trawls providing both data and samples.
