During this cruise, IFM-GEOMAR and C-MORE partnered together to utilize three mesocsoms in the open ocean to study the biogeochemical effects to Deep Sea Water (DSW) nutrient additions. This exercise had both engineering and scientific components. The first part was to test the feasibility of deploying and successfully maintaining large scale mesocosms in the open ocean. This mesocosm design had been successfully used in the Artic region: Svalbard/Spitsbergen, so our goal was to extend its usage into more potential hostile conditions. The second part was to measure the surface response of the phytoplankton when deep water macro and micro nutrients were added in.
