Ziel der Reise / Objectives of Cruise:

Poseidon Cruise 242 is the second expedition in a row of cruises which led us to the Iceland Basin. The main objective of our research interest lies in the transformation of watermasses in this ocean basin which is a major part of the subpolar gyre of the North Atlantic. Elements of hydrography in this region include the North Atlantic Current, the spreading of Labrador Sea Water and the Iceland Scotland Overflow Water along the Middle Atlantic Ridge. This work is part of the Special Research Initiative Sonderforschungsbereich 460 (SFB) at the University of Kiel.
