Objective These monthly cruises on the DYFAMED site aim to perform the following series of measurements and sampling: rosette-CTD profiles and UVP, samples for O2, DIC and nutrient, plankton net hauls. The missions' secondary objectives include checking and performing any needed maintenance on moorings and buoys located in the surrounding instrumented zone. An annual cruise complements these monthly ones in order to retrieve and deploy mooring lines (particle traps associated with various sensors) on the DYFAMED site. The following dates were days at sea: 16/02; 12/03; 14/04; 18/05; 14/07; 26+27/08; 14/09; 24/10; 14/11; 10/12/2013 (and 19/01, cancelled due to weather).
