Cruise Report W-40 : scientific activities undertaken aboard the R/V Westward, Woods Hole - Bermuda -Ile Saint-Pierre - Woods Hole, 7 June 1978 - 19 July 1978
The main objective of this cruise report is to compile the data collected by 24 undergraduate students, 3 staff scientists and 2 visiting scholars on W-40 as part of the Introduction to Marine Science (NS 225 at Boston University). This compilation in one place can serve as a guide for future Westward cruises, as a data base for interpretation of results by scientists ashore, and as a teaching reference in the shore component of the course. The cruise report between these covers presents an overview of the cruise W-40 with some preliminary interpretations of results. We conducted an array of individual projects, many of them focused on the theme of diurnal rhythms, and this report provides space to see how our diverse interests meshed.
