Sediment Trap Cruise. Updates from the JellyFarm Work Package 1.

On 19th August the JellyFarm team Dr Andrew Sweetman (Heriot Watt University, Scotland), Dr Catherine Lalande (Laval University,  Quebec City), Dr Kathy Dunlop, Dr Wenting Chan (NIVA, Norway) and RV Solvik skipper Leon Pedersen set out to continue the work on JellyFarm Work Package 1.

Successful sediment trap retrievals were made in Lurefjorden and Masfjorden where the traps have been collecting falling detrital samples since Aug 2015.  Traps were redeployed in Hardangerfjorden where they will collect data for a further year to quantify fluxes of jellyfish POC.

  1. Great blog! I really love how it is easy on my eyes and the information are well written. I am wondering how I might be notified whenever a new post has been made.
