Project: CalCOFI 1701RL, Winter CalCOFI on NOAA RV Reuben Lasker
Summary: CalCOFI 1701RL sailed from 10th Ave Marine Terminal, San Diego Jan 05 2017 at 1300PST.
The cruise was split into two legs due to severe weather off California Jan 20-24.
  • Leg I Jan 05 - 20: RV Reuben Lasker completed 75 stations successfully before returning to San Diego ~1730PST Jan 20.
  • Leg II 25 - 29 Jan: RV Reuben Lasker departed 10th Ave Marine Terminal at 0900PST 25 Jan and transited N to survey Lines 73, 70, 67, & 63. Remaining shiptime limited RV Reuben Lasker to 8 coastal stations & transects on these lines. CUFES surveying for eggs and performing two CTD profile-only casts per line (no seawater samples).

Summary:  CalCOFI 1704SH - 28 Mar - 20 Apr 2017, 104 stations occupied; sailed from 10th Ave Marine Terminal at 1600PDT 28 Mar 2017. All scheduled stations were successfully occupied - 82 stations on Leg I, 22 on Leg II. Personnel were exchanged at Monterey 15 Apr 2017 at 0900PDT. Other than rough weather three days into the cruise slowing station transits, station operations were performed without issues. With fewer analytical personnel aboard, Leg II's CTD-rosette seawater sampling depths were reduced to 12 versus Leg I's 20-24 sampled depths.

Date Submitted: February 7, 2017
Platform: NOAA Ship Bell M. Shimada
Project Number: SH-17-04 (OMAO), 1704SH (SWFSC)
Project Title: Spring CalCOFI and Saildrone Ground Truthing, SWFSC/PMEL
Project Dates: March 19, 2017 to April 21, 2017

 

I. Overview

A. Brief Summary and Project Period

I.A.1. Survey the distributions and abundances of pelagic fish stocks, their prey, and their biotic and abiotic environments in the area of the California Current between San Francisco, California and San Diego, California during the period of March 28 to April 21, 2017.

I.A.2. Ground truth the Saildrone UAS instrument suite with the Shimada.

B. Days at Sea (DAS)

I.B.1. Of the 31 DAS scheduled for this project, 25 are funded by a Line Office Allocation according to the Fleet Allocation Plan. This project is estimated to exhibit a High Operational Tempo.

I.B.2. 1 UxS day is funded for OAR-PMEL to run instrument comparisons between the SHIMADA and a Carbon Saildrone.

I.B.3 5 days are funded for OMAO for transit from Newport, Oregon to San Diego, California.

C. Operating Area

I.C.1. The area covered during this survey will be from San Diego to San Francisco and extend approximately 200 miles offshore (please see appendices 1b & 2a).

I.C.2. UxS Saildrone: The SHIMADA – Saildrone comparison will take place somewhere along the CA coast between San Francisco and Santa Barbara in less than 300m water depth. The exact location will be determined based on observations from SH-17-02. The requirements are an area with fish aggregates in the water column in less than 300m.

D. Summary of Objectives

Survey the distributions and abundances of pelagic fish stocks, their prey, and their biotic and abiotic environments in the area of the California Current between San Francisco, California and San Diego, California.

The following are specific objectives for the spring CalCOFI.

I.D.1. Continuously sample pelagic fish eggs using the Continuous Underway Fish Egg Sampler (CUFES). The data will be used to estimate the distributions and abundances of spawning hake, anchovy, mackerel, and Pacific sardine.

I.D.2. Continuously sample sea-surface temperature, salinity, and chlorophyll-a using a thermosalinometer and fluorometer. These data will be used to estimate the physical oceanographic habitats for target species.

I.D.3. Continuously sample air temperature, barometric pressure, and wind speed and direction using an integrated weather station.

I.D.4. Sample profiles of seawater temperature, salinity, chlorophyll-a, nutrients, and phytoplankton using a CTD with water-sampling rosette and other instruments at prescribed stations. Measurements of extracted chlorophyll and phaeophytin will be obtained with a fluorometer. Primary production will be measured as C14 uptake in a six hour in situ incubation. Nutrients will be measured with an auto-analyzer. These data will be used to estimate primary productivity and the biotic and abiotic habitats for target species.

I.D.5. Sample the light intensity in the photic zone using a standard Secchi disk once per day in conjunction with a daytime CTD station. These data will be used to interpret the measurements of primary production.

I.D.6. Sample plankton using a CalBOBL (CalCOFI Bongo Oblique) at prescribed stations. These data will be used to estimate the distributions and abundances of ichthyoplankton and zooplankton species.

I.D.7. Sample plankton using a Manta (neuston) net at prescribed stations. These data will be used to estimate the distributions and abundances of ichthyoplankton species.

I.D.8. Sample the vertically integrated abundance of fish eggs using a Pairovet net at prescribed stations. These data will be used to quantify the abundances and distributions of fish eggs.

I.D.9. Sample plankton using a PRPOOS (Planktonic Rate Processes in Oligotrophic Ocean Systems net) at all prescribed CalCOFI stations on lines 90.0 and 80.0 as well as stations out to and including station 70.0 on lines 86.7 and 83.3 and station 81.8 46.9. PRPOOS will not be towed on SCCOOS stations. These data will be used in analyses by the LTER (Long Term Ecological Research) project.

I.D.10. Continuously sample profiles of currents using the RDI/Teledyne Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler.

I.D.11. Continuously observe, during daylight hours, seabirds and mammals. These data will be used to estimate the distributions and abundances of seabirds and marine mammals.

I.D.12. Conduct 24 hrs of Saildrone comparison operations to validate carbon, fisheries acoustics, ADCP, oceanographic, and meteorological sensors integrated onto the Saildrone UAS.

Project: CalCOFI 1708SR (UNOLS SR1712) on SIO RV Sally Ride
Summary: CalCOFI 1708SR sailed on SIO RV Sally Ride at 1000PDT 01Aug2017 from Nimitz Marine Facilities (MarFac) San Diego. Returning to San Diego 0930PDT 16Aug2017, RV Sally Ride was offloaded upon arrival to MarFac. All 73 scheduled stations - 65 standard stations & 8 SCCOOS 20m stations were occupied (see station map). As planned, two stations were dropped - 93.3 120 & 91.7 26.4 - to complete the scheduled stations plus mooring deployment. To maximize ship transit efficiency, saving 10+hrs, RV Sally Ride sailed north after sta 83.3 51.0 to sta 80.0 60.0. With the mooring deployment scheduled for sta 80.0 55.0, this station was scheduled after sta 76.7 49.0 & the pickup of Uwe Send's mooring team at Avila Beach. Eight in-shore stations off Santa Barbara & Ventura were occupied after sta 80.55, as we transited south - see map below for actual cruise track. Please refer to the preliminary data plots web page and data links below for preliminary data.
In addition to DIC, pH, NCOG sampling, 1708SR included oxygen stable isotope seawater samples collected on 18 stations (see map for station sampled).
