2014 Shelfwide cruising update 3

We’ve finished the H transect and are motoring westward to I. As of now, we have observed no hypoxia west of the F line. However Nancy and Gene have described situations in the past where the hypoxia is discontinuous. We will know soon enough. The last couple days have been very calm, with almost glassy seas. It hasn’t been terribly hot either, so all in all, it’s a pretty ideal situation for sampling. Lauren and I have filtered 3-12 liters from the surface and the oxygen minimum at over 35 sites so far. This will be combined with lots of additional metadata being collected via the CTD and other researchers on board.
