Ziel der Reise / Objectives of Cruise:

Objectives of this cruise are A) The quantification of the microbial turnover of methane in gassy sediments as well as the characterisation of the geochemical conditions for the anaerobic methane oxidation and its temporal and regional variation; B) Quantification of the flux of methane into the water column and its dispersal and consumption C) the characterisation and identification of microorganisms involved in the methane oxidation in aerobic and anaerobic sediment layers and in the water column. As part of these investigations, characteristic organic molecules are to be identified which can be used as biomarkers for the anaerobic methane oxidation. Station work focusses on areas already intensively studied in earlier years by Hovland & Judd (1988). Geographical information comes from the British Geological Survey and from Statoil.
