The first NAAMES (the North Atlantic Aerosols and Marine Ecosystems Study) cruise was an amazing adventure! We spent the month of November collecting data along side 30 other scientists that are part of this large interdisciplinary effort to understand annual phytoplankton bloom events and their impacts on climate. Our roles on this project are (1) measure depth-resolved primary production, and (2) measure volatile organic carbon cycling by plankton. The photos here were taken by many of our talented colleagues (thank you all)!
