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).
