1711SR summary, plots, & data...

Project: CalCOFI 1711SR (UNOLS SR1717)
Summary: CalCOFI 1711SR sailed from Nimitz Marine Facilities (MarFac), San Diego at 0800 09 Nov 2017 with 17 scientists, technicians, & volunteers. 74 of 75 scheduled stations were successfully occupied; one station was missed due to naval operations precluding our timely occupation of sta 90.45. A personnel exchange mid-cruise caused a major change in the station order. On Line 80, sta 80.55, we were restricted from station due to a NOAA weather satellite missle launch so we continued west to 80.60. Sta 80.55 was occupied on our southward transit to Line 87. Refer to cruise track map for actual cruise track and station order.
RV Sally Ride returned to San Diego at ~1430 24 Nov 2017 & due to the Thanksgiving holiday, offloading was postponed till 0800 Monday 27 Nov.

Please note that the anomalies are based on 50-year harmonics (1949-1999) and these data are 1m binavg Seasoft-processed CTD data that have not gone through thorough quality control checks or bottle corrections. They are presented to give a general impression of current conditions.

General CTD Notes - data acquisition notes, logistics, processing - see below.
Please note that these regressions are generated from preliminary CTD vs bottle data and will be reprocessed once final bottle data are available. CTD temperatures and salinities do not usually change but oxygen, estimated chlorophyll-a, estimated nitrate may change significantly after point-checking. Questionable or mistrip bottle data are removed from these comparisons but may be visible on the CTD.csv plots. For this cruise and future cruises, both primary & secondary sensor profiles vs bottle data will be generated and archived in the downloadable CTD+Bottle data files. These plots are under the "csv-plots\Primary" & "csv-plots\Secondary" subdirectories.

I. Overview

  1. Brief Summary and Project Period:  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 Diego, California and Avila Beach, California during the period of 9-24 November 2017.
  2. Operating Area:  From San Diego, CA to Avila Beach, CA and out 400 nautical miles. Please refer to Station Order & Coordinates PDF
  3. 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 Diego, California and Avila Beach, California.
    1. I.C.1. Continuously sample multi-frequency acoustic backscatter using the Simrad EK80. The data will be used to estimate the distributions and abundances of coastal pelagic fishes (e.g., sardine, anchovy, and mackerel), and krill species.
    2. I.C.2. Continuously sample sea-surface temperature, salinity, and chlorophyll-a using a thermosalinograph. These data will be used to estimate the physical oceanographic habitats for target species.
    3. I.C.3. Continuously sample air temperature, barometric pressure, and wind speed and direction using an integrated weather station.
    4. I.C.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.
    5. I.C.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.
    6. I.C.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.
    7. I.C.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.
    8. I.C.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.
    9. I.C.9. Sample plankton using a PRPOOS (Planktonic Rate Processes in Oligotrophic Ocean Systems net) at all prescribed CalCOFI stations on lines 90.0, 86.7, 83.3 and 80.0 only. These data will be used in analyses by the LTER (Long Term Ecological Research) project.
    10. I.C.10. Continuously observe, during daylight hours, mammals. These data will be used to estimate the distributions and abundances of marine mammals.
    11. I.C.11. Deployment of four expendable wave measuring drifters at the offshore end of CalCOFI lines.
