Post Cruise Meeting I
The first Meteor M160 post cruise meeting took place online with 31 participants from GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel, Helmholtz Centre Geesthacht, MARUM/University of Bremen and University of Kaiserslautern on June 22, 2020 (Figure 1).
The participants - coming from different research disciplines - are involved in analysing and interpreting the data sets, which has been recorded during the Meteor M160 expedition.
Purpose of the three-hour meeting was to update each other on the current data analysis status and to discuss first results. Furthermore, the researchers identified opportunities for direct cooperation among each other and also brainstormed about ways to publish their new insights on biogeochemical processes in oceanic eddies generated off West Africa.
In addition, the GEOMAR data management gave a brief overview how the data generated during the Meteor M160 expedition will be made accessible within the course of the project.
A follow-up meeting on the progress of the data analysis and interpretation of new findings is scheduled for October/November 2020.
