Cruise Log #6: new transect and last day of field work (19 Sep)

On the 19th of September HabWAVE’s team set off to sea one last time during this campaign, to repeat the transect work carried out on the 16th of September. NRP Auriga’s crew took the opportunity to retrieve the mooring that had been deployed at the beginning of the campaign and remained for the entirety of its duration, measuring currents and sediment dynamics at about 100 m deep. Once again, the field work consisted in cross-shore vertical sections of temperature, salinity, turbidity, and Rosette samples for phytoplankton, HPLC and nutrients.
