FIELD OPERATIONS AND ORDER OF SAMPLING FOR A GENERIC STATION

1. Position ship if possible to facilitate deployment of teams on ice from the
port side of the ship (~once daily, daylight conditions; possibly more than once
daily if requested)
2. Starboard and aft shipboard operations underway while ice teams are deployed
3. Helicopter operations interspersed, daylight hours
4. CTD deployment from starboard winch (T/S, chlorophyll, nutrients, O-18,
bottom water for respiration cores),
5. Optics underway using Seamac winch; UV meter is hand-deployed;
6. Net collections using zooplankton net from stern
7. Benthic collections (5-7 van Veen grabs, 2 HAPs multi-corer deployments).
8. Recover ice teams from sea ice to ship
9. Transit to next station
