Project: CalCOFI 1611SR (UNOLS SR1608)
Summary:  CalCOFI 1611SR sailed from SIO's Nimitz Marine Facility San Diego Nov 06 2016 at 0800PST and returned as scheduled 0800 Nov 22 2016. Offloading started upon arrival to San Diego. 75 of 75 scheduled stations (66 standard and 9 SCCOOS stations) were successfully occupied. Please refer to the preliminary data plots web page and data links below for preliminary data.
The typical 75-station summer station pattern was scheduled but due to high winds and rough seas on Line 83, we worked along the coast before heading to Line 80. During this time, all net tows on stations 80.70, 80.60, 80.55, and 80.51 (Manta only) were cancelled. CTD-rosette casts were done only because the RV Sally Ride's LARS system could safely deploy and recover the rosette. On any other ship, we would have cancelled all operations due to near-gale force winds and rough seas. After completing station 77.49, we were able to recover net tows (Bongo, Pairover, Manta) on stations 80.60 & 80.55. So all net tows on sta 80.70 were missed and the Manta tow on sta 80.51.
