This time the JellyFarm team were on there way to Hadangerfjorden collecting box cores at 380 m onboard the RV Solvik.
|Morning in Hadangerfjorden|
Multicores were collected from the boxcores to set up an experiment in the laboratory at IRIS to examine the effect of jelly-fall decompostion on sediment ammonium and sulphate levels. This ties into Workpackage 5 to study scavenging processes at jelly-falls. This experiment will enable us to determin if toxic levels of ammounium and sulphates produced by jelly-fall decomposition may deter scavengers from removing jelly-falls.
This trip to Hadangerfjorden allowed us to try out some of the improvements to the design that Captain Leon had made to the boxcore.
