During the night we moved to another station. This transit led to the first symptoms of seasickness for certain participants. Upon arrival, we started our more regular sampling scheme in the morning. First, landers were deployed, which are used to measure the transport of certain constituents through the boundary between the water and the seafloor . These landers will be retrieved again in the evening, and you’ll hear more about them in an upcoming blog. Then, similarly as yesterday, water samples were taken at various depths. Today, these samples will additionally be used to determine particulate iron as well as some other trace elements (chemical elements that occur in very low concentrations) and their isotopic composition. Afterwards, pumps went into the sea to pump water at various depth through filters. These filters can then be used for a variety of mineralogical and geochemical analyses. After that, the sediment team could finally start their jobs, as the first multicores were successfully retrieved. Also their work will be discussed in upcoming blogs. All in all, everyone is keeping themselves pretty busy!
