Ziel der Reise / Objectives of Cruise:

The scientific goal of the cruise was to investigate deep reaching oceanic convection and water mass propertier in the Nordic Seas, in particular in the Greenland Sea. Deep reaching convection to deep around 1200 to 1500m was detected. Convection appeared to have occured basinwide prior to cruise time; presumably this might have happened in March or early April. An isolated convective "Chimney" was observed at 74? 53'N/00? 40'E.
