Winter Ops

Filed Under (Uncategorized) by shearmar on 10-11-2009

We’re back in the water off Oregon. Now we are in our winter sampling mode, where we get one out-in section and then recover at the first chance the weather gives us.

The outbound section shows a big slug of warm, (super) high chlorophyll in the offshore surface layer. This is may be associated with the icky HAB (Akashiwo sanguinea) that created a foam that dissolved the water-proofing oils from seabirds and was killing them as a result (http://www.oregonlive.com/news/index.ssf/2009/10/killer_foam_was_it_a_freak_eve.html).
