PREP_RVF_20170214-report-SOCIB-canales-winter-2017.pdf: Entry Information
A repeat seasonal hydrographic survey of the Balearic Sea, monitoring the Ibiza and Mallorca Channels. 23 CTD stations were carried out over 3 days; the stations forming three transects across the Ibiza Channel (IC). Normally a fourth day involves 10 CTD stations across the Mallorca Channel (MC); these stations were skipped and the ship steamed back to Palma de Mallorca during the evening on the 17th February. An additional stop was made for maintenance of the Ibiza Channel buoy, where surface samples were taken for comparison with the buoys sensors.
