Summary: CalCOFI 1604SH on NOAA RV Bell M Shimada left San Diego 01 April 2016, successfully occupied 101.5 station and offloaded in San Francisco 23 Apr 2016. Sta 60.90 was the "0.5" station since net tows were performed but the CTD-rosette cast was cancelled due to marginal conditions. Navy ops near San Nicolas Island created a westward transit delay so coastal station work on line 83 was performed before stas west of 86.7 35 - refer to the station map for station work & sequence. Later, additional Navy ops required us to move north of line 80 and work stations on line 76.7 before line 80. Unfortunately, the weather got rough as we started line 80 offshore and two important stations, 80.80 and 80.70, were missed due to bad weather. After finishing sta 80.55, completing the 75-sta standard pattern, personnel were dropped off 16 Apr in Santa Barbara. CTD-rosette operations on ther remaining lines, 73.3, 70.0, 66.7, 63.3, & 60.0, were sampled using a 12-bottle rosette, reducing the analytical sample load.
RV Shimada came into San Francisco's Pier 30/32 0800 23Apr2016 for packup and offload. Gear and bins were loaded onto trucks 24Apr2016, trucked to San Diego, and offloaded 25Apr2016.
