The latest CLASS-supported cruise was an expedition to the Porcupine Abyssal Plain Sustained Observatory (PAP-SO) in the Northeast Atlantic Ocean. This is a continuation of a long-term time-series of observations – a vital tool that underpins our understanding of the changes occurring in the Atlantic Ocean.
One of the early career researchers (ECR) aboard was Olmo Miguez-Salas who was awarded a CLASS ECR fellowship and has already written about his experience during the cruise. However during the cruise there were also regular blog posts covering subjects such as the Twilight Zone, bioturbation analysis, deep sea scavengers and monitoring zooplankton as well as the varied equipment used during the cruise and a look at the laboratories on board and the work done within.
All the posts can be found on the PAP Observatory website.
