Rendezvous with the SOCIB and CTD test

The SOCIB, as viewed from the Alliance

At the rendezvous point with the SOCIB, the CTD rosette was lowered to a depth of 300m and the bottles fired to collect seawater. This water is then used for various analysis, including oxygen, chlorophyl and DNA

The CTD rosette is lowered from this arm into the ocean. The SOCIB is also seen taking measurements.
Mara Freilich prepares the seawater samples for flow cytometry. These samples are then frozen in liquid nitrogen until the analysis can be completed on land.
