Seasonal Cruise Q3/ August

Nansen Legacy cruise number: 05

Cruise name: Q3

Cruise leaders: Marit Reigstad (UiT), Tove Gabrielsen (UNIS)

Duration: 5.-27. August 2019

Ship: R/V Kronprins Haakon

The first of the four seasonal cruises tok place in August, with a 35 person strong scientists team on board RV Kronprins Haakon. The Nansen Legacy seasonal cruise Q3 (Q3: 3rd quarter of the year) addressed objectives of the research foci in RF1 on physical drivers, RF2 on human drivers, and RF3 on the living Barents Sea, and collected necessary data along the Nansen Legacy transect in open waters and within the ice. Experiments were an important component of the conducted research in order to quantify processes, rates and interactions that will also feed modeling work and projections in RF4. The observational capacity was increased also outside the cruise periods, through deployment of two gliders for RF1, and three moorings in collaboration with RF1/2/3.
