  • Study of spatial and temporal variations of hydrographic, hydrochemical and biological parameters in the frame of the COMBINE Programme of HELCOM , combined with long term observations of IOW

  • Monitoring cruise in the frame of the COMBINE programme of HELCOM

  • The monitoring cruise 03/10 in the Fehmarnbelt area from E Langeland to SE of Moen was scheduled from 08th March 2010 to 12th March 2010. According to the general reduction of the monitoring cruises the biostations 22, H37 and 40 were not sampled. Due to the still very low biological activity of jelly fish 3 stations could be fully sampled on March 10 (WP2 and MPS). The forth biostation on the same day was only sampled by WP2. It has been an successful cruise, thanks to very calm weather and sea condition. The time delay of one night, based upon a technical problem with the CTD winch cable, could luckily be caught up. The cruise ended in the morning of March 12th in R??dby harbor as scheduled.

  • The 9.th HD/marine Biologymonitoring cruise (cruise number 26JL0909) in the Femern Belt Area from E Langeland to SE of Moen was scheduled from 30.th November 2009 to 6.st December 2009. Due to good weather conditions it was possible to start immediately after the whole equipment was set up on R/V JHC Miljø. The scientific program could be worked off continuously and very close to the cruise plan almost during the whole cruise. Only one short stop at Gedser port were necessary because of some technical problems of the ship, and caused an interruption of the work but these circumstances didn't have any consequences for the very successful cruise. All the work was finished at 6. dec. 2009 12:00 local time in Rødby as planned.

  • The monitoring cruise 01/10 in the Fehmarnbelt area from E Langeland to SE of Moen was scheduled from 11th January 2010 to 17th January 2010. Unfortunate seasonal weather conditions plus technical problems during the cruise caused a time delay and limitation of the cruise program. Daily to hourly changes in the cruise plan were necessary to adjust to the respective weather conditions. The scientific work continued best possible. The cruise ended on January 16th in R??dby harbor due to strongly increasing wind in the weekend.

  • The Forth FEHY/FEMA cruise was made in the period 29. June to 6.July 2009. The cruise was planned to be done in maximum seven days. ADCP measurements were done on the whole cruise line. Biological measurements were done on 12 positions and CTD profiles on 93 positions

  • Summary: This cruise was the first after the decision, that future cruises should be performed in only 4 days; it was possible only due to good weather conditions. According to the new program, 64 CTD stations, 11 BIO stations, 1 WQ station and ADCP in transects underway was planned. The new shortened program was fulfilled, but one CTD station (H021) was cancelled due to ice on the sea surface in Langeland Belt. In Langeland belt a mixed water column was observed, in the area around Darss transect a halocline in 15-18 meters dept was determined. In the alignment area 2(south)-3(north) haloclines were observed. In the surface salinity was 10-14 PSU and temperature between 0 and -1 degree C. In the bottom layer salinity was around 11-14 PSU and temperature -1-0 degree C.

  • The 8.th HD/marine Biology cruise monitoring cruise (cruise number 26JL0908) in the Femern Belt Area from E Langeland to SE of Moen was scheduled from 27th October 2009 to 3rd November 2009. Due to good weather conditions it was possible to start immediately after the whole equipment was set up on RV JHC Miljø. The scientific program could be worked off continuously and very close to the cruise plan almost during the whole cruise. Only two short stops at Rødby harbour were necessary because of some technical problems of the ship and caused an interruption of the work but these circumstances didn't have any consequences for the very successful cruise. The increasing wind during the last two days raised a small time delay but despite this all the work could be finished at 12:00 local time in Rødby on 3rd November 2009 as planned.

  • Studies of the spatial and temporal variations of hydrographic, hydrochemical and hydrobiological parameters in the frame of the COMBINE Programme of HELCOM as well as measurements for the IOW's long term data set.
