This was the first of a series of six AMT
cruises funded by a NERC Consortium Grant. It sailed from Port
Stanley, The Falklands on 12 May 2003 and docked in Grimsby, UK on
17 June 2003. The principal scientist was Tim Jickells from
the University of East Anglia, UK.
The cruise aimed to compare and contrast the functioning of the
plankton in the north and south Atlantic gyres.
