Ziel der Reise / Objectives of Cruise:

The aim of the transit of the R/V Sonne from Wellington to Kaohsiung (SO-226-3) was to collect living planktonic foraminifera from the water column along a S-N transect through the subtropical and tropical western Pacific and to characterize their physical and biological habitat. The collection of foraminifera will be used to determine the extent of genetic diversity in morphologically defined species these organisms and characterize the distribution and linkages to physical habitats of individual genetic types across the environmental gradient covered by the cruise. To this end, as far possible, daily sampling of the upper 700 m of the water column with two multiple closing plankton net hauls (one to 700 m and one to 100 m) has been carried out, accompanied by a CTD cast and a characterization of the distribution of phytoplankton pigments. Additional plankton net hauls and overlapping intervals between the shallow and deep haul have been filtered and will serve as a basis for an attempt to characterize genetic composition of planktonic foraminifera assemblage in environmental bulk samples by means of next generation sequencing. A total of 16 stations have been carried out during the cruise, including 16 CTD deployments and 36 multinet hauls at 15 stations.
