Abstract

This unbound logbook records plankton sample data for Conrad cruise 11 from December 27, 1966 to November 11, 1967. Summary of route: Starting point 10°s 33°w off the coast of Brazil. They sail south into the Southern Ocean, then slightly north and east across the South Atlantic Ocean into the southern most regions of the Indian Ocean. They sail north along the coast of Australia and into the Java Sea, through the Makassar (Makasar) Strait, through the Celebes Sea, and into the Philippine Sea. Then they sail north near the Gulf of Alaska, south along the west coast of North America, into the South Pacific Ocean, then northeast into the Caribbean Sea and then northeast into the Atlantic Ocean, ending off the coast of the mid-Atlantic United States. Plankton sample data sheets have the following information: ship-cruise, ship station, sample and number of samples, coordinates, date, local start and finish time, duration, wire angle, TDR no., corrected depth range, type tow, opening-closing, sampler type, ship speed, TSK flowmeter no. and reading, temperature, salinity. Logs also include the following environmental data: surface water temp., air temp., sky conditions, cloud cover, sea conditions, wave height, wind speed, water transparency, BT slide info, BS slide info, Hydro station no. and type, surface salinity sample no., core no., depth to bottom, other sample information, comments (successful tow? If not, why?), observer name. The back (verso) of some these forms records wire angle and hydro station data. Some sheets include time-depth recorders, (made by Benthos, Inc), which are approximately 3 inches in diameter.
