NES-LTER summer transect underway
Heather, Pierre, Victoria and Mikayla are our A-team aboard the NES-LTER summer cruise, as always under the able leadership of Chief Scientist Heidi Sosik (WHOI). Our team is adding exciting elements of oxygen measurements and working with the Rynearson lab (Diana and Mary) to test out C13-isotope labeling as a means to obtain primary production measurements. Scientifically challenging, but a cake walk for this group. This is the 4th transect cruise and second summer cruise, starting to put the L into LTER.
