Spring Mooring Cruise Underway in the Bering Sea

April 27, 2010

Scientists from PMEL's Fisheries Oceanography program are cruising the Bering Sea from April 23-May 3 for the first mooring cruise of the spring season. Aboard the NOAA research ship Oscar Dyson, they are in Alaskan waters to retrieve and redeploy moorings, collect CTD (conductivity-temperature-depth) and other data.

You can follow the cruise and see pictures from the Bering Sea on the Research Mooring Cruise to the Bering Sea web page.
