Ziel der Reise / Objectives of Cruise:

Purpose of the cruise was a detailed study of deeper water corals and their ecological parameters within 2 EU project (ACES and ECOMOUND) under the 5th Framework Programme. The cruise left Thorshavn with the aim to the Porcupine Slope (Latitude 51?N, water depth 600-1200m), which shows large thickets on top of giant carbonate mounds (up to 300m hight). To get the necessary data we focused on the following scientific objectives: 1) To map the structural and genetic variability, the framework-construction potential, and the longevity of deep-water coral ecosystems. 2) To assess hydrographic and other local physical forcing factors affecting the benthic boundary layer sediment particle dynamics and POC supply in the vicinity of deep-water coral ecosystem. 3) To describe the deep-water ecosystems, its dynamics and functioning.
