All the participants arrived Chennai on 24/09/09 and boarded the vessel ORV Sagar
Kanya at Chennai port at 1330 hrs on 25/09/09. Loading of mooring equipment was
completed at 2330 hrs. The Ship sailed out from the port at 0208 hrs 0n 26/09/09. The
meteorological observations were carried out from 0600 hrs on 27/09/09 at every six
hours interval up to 150N (off Goa) along the track for XBT observations program. We
have carried out FOUR additional deployments of ADCP and DVSs at FOUR locations
10N, 92040’E; 10S, 930E; 10N, 77ºE; and 10S, 77ºE along with the servicing of existing
moorings at the Equator, 93E, 00, 83E and 00, 77E. Bathymetry survey of the areas was
also carried out at the additional deployment areas. The first CTD operation along with
the biological and chemical sampling were carried out and servicing of ADCP, RCMs etc
done on 4/10/09. Separate water sampling was also done for the GRAZING and
Respiration rate Experiments. There were total 19 CTDs completed along 830E from 50 N
to 50 S, and at Equator, 930E; 83E and 77E. The MPN and Primary Productivity (PP)
mooring were also carried out at selective locations. There were total 24 XBTs were fired
along the track at different locations. After completing all the planned objectives
successfully, we reached Marmugao port on 30/10/09. The cruise was ended at that
port.

                                 2. CRUISE TRACK
                                 3. INTRODUCTION

The cruise SK-264 was the ninth of the series since 2000 for undertaking the equatorial
current meter mooring operations under the Ocean Observing System (OOS) program of
the Ministry of Earth Science. The cruise was organized for servicing and maintenance
of the three existing

current meter moorings at 77ºE, 83ºE and 93ºE along the Equator which were deployed
during 31 August – 3 October 2008 and January 2009, and also deploy additional four
moorings at 10N, 93ºE; 10S, 93ºE; 10N, 77ºE; and 10S, 77ºE. All the participants boarded
the vessel at Chennai port on 25 September 2009. The cruise started on 26/09/09 at
Chennai port and completed at Marmugao Port on 30/10/09.

                            7. WORK ACCOMPLISHED

The cruise participants started from NIO and at different origins on 23/09/09 and
24/09/09 to board ORV Sagar Kanya at Chennai Port and boarded the ship at 1330 hrs
on 25/09/09. The Ship sailed out from Chennai Port at 0208 hrs on 26/09/09. We had a
meeting with scientists, Norinco personnel and seamen. We discussed about
observations and formed different working groups. The meteorological observations
were started from 0600 hrs on 27/09/09 at every six hours interval for XBT observations
program. The ship was moved towards 1st deployment location 10N, 930E. It was noticed
that this position falls in the EEZ of the SUMATRA. We have decided to shift the
deployment location twenty miles away from the actual position.

The ship reached the position 01002.00’N, 092038.00’E at 1430 hrs on 30/09/09.
Onboard CTD was tested by sending it up to 500 m. It was working fine. Bathymetry
survey at this location was done and the average depth was 4380 m. The deployment of
ADCP at this location was started at 0825 hrs on 01/10/09 and was successfully
completed at 1200 hrs. The triangulation ranges were noted down for the mooring and
proceed to 10S, 930E at 1300 hrs on 01/10/09. Reached at 10S, 930E at 0300 hrs on
02/10/09 and surveyed the area up to 0530 hrs. The average depth was 4580 m. The
ADCP deployment at this location was started at 0830 hrs and completed at 1225 hrs.
After taking triangular ranges, we proceed to Equator, 930E and reached there at 2100
hrs. The retrieval of the existing mooring at this location was started at 0525 hrs and
completed at 1505 hrs on 03/10/09. The first CTD operation along with the biological
and chemical sampling were carried out and servicing of ADCP, RCMs etc done on
4/10/09. Separate water sampling was also done for the GRAZING and Respiration rate
Experiments. The details of these experiments are mentioned else where in this report.
The redeployment of mooring at this location was completed successfully at 1100 hr on
05/10/09. After taking triangulation ranges, moved towards next mooring location 00 0,
830E. Mean while on the way the sediment trap belongs to INCOIS, Hyderabad which
was supposed to be deployed along with the mooring equipment at 000, 830E was tested.
However, it was not working and dropped the idea of deploying it at the above location.
The same was informed to INCOIS. The retrieval of mooring at 000, 830E completed at
1300 hrs on 8/10/09. The 2nd CTD and bio-chemical sampling including MPN were
carried out at this location and completed at 1820 hrs on 8/10/09. The primary
productivity (PP) sampling was done using CTD sampler at 0200 hrs and PP buoy
deployed at 0515 hrs and retrieved the same 1830 hrs on 9/10/09. The servicing of
mooring equipment was carried out during the day. The redeployment of the equipment
at 000, 830E was started at 0730 hrs and completed including triangulation at 1800 hrs on
10/10/09. Along 830E the bio-chemical and physical observations were carried out using
CTD and rosette sampler up to 1000 m from 50N to 50S. These observations were
carried out at a half degree interval up to 30 and after that at one degree. The PP buoy
was also deployed at 50N and 50S. After completing these observations at 50S, 830E, the
ship moved towards next station, 10S, 770E at 1840 hrs on 17/10/09. Reached at 10S,
770E at 1530 hrs on 19/10/09 and carried out bathymetry survey of the area up to 0010
hrs on 20/10/09. The deployment of ADCP along with DVSs started at 0715 hrs and
completed including triangulation at 1350 hrs on 20/10/09. Later on we reached to next
station 10N, 770E at 0140 hrs on 21/10/09 and completed bathymetry survey of the area
up to 0640 hrs. The average depth was 4200 m. The deployment of ADCP and DVSs
were started at 0920 hrs and completed at 1200 hrs. The triangulation for this mooring
was completed at 1345 hrs.

 The vessel moved towards 000, 770E at 1350 hrs and reached the position at 2030 hrs
on 21/10/09. The retrieval of existing mooring was started at 0500 hrs. The second set of
buoys was sited first at 0645 hrs. The entire mooring was entangled within itself and it
was very difficult to retrieve all the equipment safely to onboard the vessel. The entire
operation was completed at 2035 hrs. The CTD was operated at this location at 1000 hrs
on 23/10/09. NORINCO tested the CTD (INDRONAUT) while lowering it up to 4000 m.
The servicing of RCMs was carried out during the day. On 24/10/09, the RCMs, not
ADCP as the ADCP buoy was damaged badly, were redeployed at 000, 770E at 1015
hrs. The same was completed at 1350hr. The triangulation was also completed at this
mooring. With this we have completed all the mooring operations and planned CTDs and
started back to Marmugao port on the same day. The XBT observations were continued
up to off Marmugao port. The vessel reached Marmugao port and came along side at
1000 hrs on 30/10/09 and the cruise ended.

7.1 Mooring operations:
Deployment of ADCP and DVSs (current meter) at 10N, 92o 40’E
The Additional ADCP mooring was planned to deploy at 10N, 93oE. Since the location is
falling in the EEZ of Sumatra, it was shifted 20 miles away from the scheduled position.
The area was surveyed for bathymetry before deployment. The average depth was 4380
m. The deployment of ADCP along with DVSs started at 0824 hrs and completed at
1202 hrs on 01/10/09. The anchor drop position was 00057.835’N, 092035.809’E and
depth 4402 m. The triangulation ranges were noted down for the mooring position. The
details of the mooring are shown in table Nos. 7.1.1-7.1.5

Deployment of ADCP and DVSs (current meter) at 10S, 93oE
The bathymetry survey of the area about 10 km x 10 km around 10S, 93oE was carried
out before the deployment of 2nd additional ADCP and DVSs on 02/10/09. The average
depth was 4580 m.
The deployment of ADCP etc was started at 0825 hrs and completed at 1225 hrs. The
anchor drop position was 00059.401’S, 092059.597’E and depth 4591 m. The
triangulation was done for the mooring location. The details of the mooring are given in
table No. 7.2.1-7.2.5

Servicing of mooring at 000, 0930E
   a) Retrieval of mooring:
   The retrieval of mooring was started by releasing the dead weight from the acoustic
   release at 0525 hrs on 03/10/09. The ADCP buoy of the mooring was onboard at
   0725 hrs. The last equipment, the acoustic release came onboard at 1505 hrs. The
   details of the data and equipment are given in table Nos. 7.3.1.1-7.3.1.5
   b) Redeployment of mooring:
   After servicing the ADCP and RCMs on 04/10/09, the redeployment of the same was
   started at 0625 hr on 05/10/09 and completed at 1058 hrs. The anchor drop position
   of the mooring was 00000.322’N, 093001.631’E and the depth 4504 m. The details
   are mentioned in table No.7.3.2.1-7.3.2.5

Service of mooring at 000, 830E
   a) Retrieval of mooring
   The range was taken to release the mooring at 0430 hrs on 08/10/09. However, as
   usual ACR was not detected and range was not shown on the deck unit. The
   mooring was released at 0515 hr but no signal from the ACR. The second ACR was
   also released still no signal from the under water unit. Without any indication the
   buoy pop up to the surface and sited at 0535 hrs. The ADCP buoy was brought to the
   deck at 0640 hrs and the retrieval of all the equipment completed successfully at
   1300 hrs. The details of the retrieval are mentioned in the table Nos.7.4.1.1-7.4.1.5
   b) Redeployment of mooring
   The servicing of ADCP, RCMs, ACR and spooling wire rope for the mooring was
   carried out on 09/10/09. The deployment of equipment was started at 0700 hrs on
   10/10/09. The ADCP buoy was at surface at 0725 hrs. The deep sea winch used for
   the mooring purpose was tripped off during the operation from 0830 hrs to 1230 hrs.
   The operation was suspended during that time. The deployment restored again at
   1300 hr and completed the same at 1548 hrs. The triangulation for the mooring
   position was completed at 1800 hrs. The details of mooring are shown in the table
   Nos.7.4.2.1-7.4.2.5

                                   0      0
Deployment of ADCP and DVSs at 01 S, 077 E

Reached the position at 1530 hrs on 19/10/09 and carried out bathymetry survey of the
area of 8 kts x 8 kts up to 0010 hrs on 20/10/09. The average depth of the area was
4780 m. The deployment at 010S, 0770E was started at 0715 hrs on 20/10/09. The
ADCP buoy was on the sea surface at 0730 hrs and the deployment completed at 1115
hrs. The anchor drop position was 00059.844’S, 076059.146’E and the depth 4775 m.
The triangulation for the mooring position was completed at 1350 hrs. The details of the
mooring are explained in the table Nos. 7.5.1-7.5.5
                                   0      0
Deployment of ADCP and DVSs at 01 N, 077 E

The vessel reached the position at 0140 hrs on 21/10/09. We started bathymetry survey
of the area 8kts x 8 kts at 0150 hrs and completed it at 0640 hrs. The average depth was
4200 m. The deployment of the equipment at 010N, 0770E was started at 0920 hrs. The
ADCP buoy was on the sea surface at 0935 hrs. The deployment was completed at 1201
hrs. The anchor drop position of the mooring was 01000.162’N, 077000.325’E and the
depth 4256 m. The details of the mooring are given in the table Nos.7.6.1-7.6.5

Servicing of mooring at 000, 0770E
   a) Retrieval of mooring
   The ship was on the top of the mooring at 0500 hrs on 22/10/09 during the range was
   taken to the mooring position. We released the mooring at 0545 hrs. After 30 minutes
   also nothing was sited on the sea surface. The second ACR’s hook was released still
   no buoy was seen at the site. Meanwhile the ship was drifted nearly two kilometres
   from the actual mooring position. The ship was turned towards the position. Suddenly
   we noticed some floats at 0645 hrs behind the ship nearer to the aft. The ship was
   stopped immediately. The floats did not look like the ADCP buoy and the first set of
   floats. We could not locate the ADCP buoy anywhere on the sea surface. We were
   guessing that the floats might be the second set of floats. We waited nearly two
   hours to see the movement of the floats. The drift of the floats was so slow that they
   were just following the ship movement. We thought the wire rope was entangled with
   the ship. We waited another two hours and had serious discussions with the captain,
   the chief Engineer and our mooring group etc. By that time the floats moved away
   from the ship. Once it was cleared that nothing was entangled with the ship, the
   Captain moved the ship towards the floats. Then it was confirmed that the second set
   of floats only came to the surface. When the floats were hooked it was already 1300
    hrs on 22/10/09. After a long struggle on the deck by the chief officer, mooring group
    and other participants we could get all the instruments on the deck because
    everything was entangled and the ADCP buoy sunk to more than 2500 m and lost its
    buoyancy. The entire operation was completed at 2035 hrs on 22/10/09. In this
    process, the ACR chain was lost. The items (1. Radio Beacon, 2. ADCP buoy, 3.
    RCM7, 4. RCM8, 5. Mooring wire rope- 4000 m, 6. Triple Mc-Lane – 1No., Benthos –
    3 Nos.) attached to the mooring were damaged at sea because of the complete
    entanglement of the mooring line. The details of the retrieval are given in the table
    Nos.7.7.1.1-7.7.1.5
    b) Redeployment of mooring.
    Mr. Almeida and his group serviced the remaining four current meters and new wire
    rope of 4000 m was spooled by deck hands and mooring group on 23/10/09.The
    deployment of current meters was started at 1015 hrs on 24/10/09 and completed at
    1350 hrs. The anchor drop position of the mooring was 00000.567’S, 076059.544’E
    and the depth 4752 m. The details of the deployment are shown in fig and table
    No.7.7.2.1-7.7.2.5

7.2 Surface meteorological measurements
(Sub-team: Hendry Fernandes, Byju, Suharsh Naik, Prasad and Chkradhar)


Surface meteorological parameters of Sea Surface Temperature (SST), wind speed and
direction, barometric pressure (corrected to mean sea level), dry bulb and wet bulb
temperature, and navigation information were collected at six hourly and three hourly
intervals for XBT and physical, biogeo-chemical observations respectively from 27
September 2009. The bucket thermometer and met kit were used for this purpose.

7.3 CTD operations
(Sub-team: Anselm Almeida, MSS Sarma, RJK Charyulu, Byju, norinco Suharsh Naik, Prasad
and Chkradhar )


The Sea-bird CTD was operated for all the observations during the cruise. Total 19 CTD
observations at nineteen locations were carried out through out the cruise. The CTD was
operated up to 1000 m depth. The details of CTD operations are given in the table No.7.9


7.4 Biological sampling:
(Sub-team: Arati Verenkar and Padmaja Shirodkar)

  1) Microzooplankton Grazing:
  Dilution experiment: : is defined as the rate of grazing of phytoplankton organic carbon
  by micro-zooplankton per unit volume of seawater. The dilution approach protocol is
  based on the experimental determination of phytoplankton growth in a dilution series.
  The dilution series is made up by combining the natural microbial community with
  seawater that has been filtered free of microbial components.
Procedure: Sampling is done from the depths of interest (SCM 60m) using CTD.
Dilution series is done. Samples are collected at t0 immediately after dilution, incubated
for 24 hours. Samples are collected after 24 hours of incubation and analysis done.
Various parameters such as total
bacterial count, micro-zooplankton, chlorophyll, phytoplankton could be studied from
the samples for more details.
2) Chlorophyll a by flourometric Analysis:
Chl a measurements have historically provided a useful estimate of algal biomass .The
fluro-metric method is extensively used for the quantitative Analysis of chla &
pheopigments . Water samples a re collected from the below eight discrete depths i.e
0,10,20,40,60,80,100,120 m, using CTD Rosette sampler. Collected Water samples (1
L) are immediately filtered through 47 mm GF/F filter paper under low vacuum & deep
frozen. Filters papers are then transported to the laboratory in liquid nitrogen can. Chl a
is then extracted in 10 ml 90 % acetone in dark for 24 hours in a refrigerator and
concentration is determined fluorometrically.
3) Phytoplankton count :
The direct estimate of phytoplankton cell density as the measure of standing crop is
usually made by this method. Water samples are collected from 0, 10, 20, 40, 60, 80,
100, 120 m depths using CTD Rosette sampler. are then fixed with 2% lugol’s iodine.
A settling and siphoning procedure is followed to concentrate samples. The
enumeration is done using Sedgwick Rafter.
4) Bacterial abundance:
Bacterial enumeration in seawater is done by using DAPI (4,6-Diamino-2phenylindole).
Water samples are collected from 0, 10, 20,40,60,80,100,120 m depths using CTD
Rosette sampler. Bacteria are preserved, stained with DAPI & concentrated onto a
membrane filter. This causes the individual bacterial cell to fluoresce bluish white
under UV on an epifluorescence microscope. The individual cells are counted in field of
view of known area and the concentration of bacterial in original sample is calculated.
5) Mesozooplankton Biomass & total count :
Samples are collected with a Multiple Plankton Net from five depths .The biomass of
mesozooplankton is estimated by conventional displacement volume method. Sample
is then split using Folsom splitter and the total count is estimated.

6) Primary Production by 14C method:
Primary productivity is defined as the uptake of inorganic carbon into particulate matter
as mg C/m3/day .The rate of carbon fixation (= primary production) by autotrophs in
seawater is measured by tracing the uptake of radioactive 14C from the dissolved
inorganic form to the particulate organic form.
Procedure: Water samples were collected from different depths (0, 10, 20, 40, 60, 80,
100, 120m) using CTD Rosette sampler .Water samples drawn at pre-dawn were
collected in four 250 ml capacity polycarbonate bottles (3 light and one dark) .One
ampoule of NaH14CO3 is added in
 each bottle containing water samples from different depths. These are then incubated
 in-situ using a mooring system, at respective depths for 12 hours from just before
 sunrise to half an hour after sunset. Incorporation of phytoplankton is detected by
 filtering incubated samples with 47 mm GF/F filters (0.7 um). Then it is exposed to
 fumes of HCl (0.5 N). Then 5 ml of liquid scintillation cocktail is added to it and
 radioactivity is measured using a scintillation counter.
 The details are given table No.7.9


7.5 Chemical sampling:
(Sub-Team: M. Muthukumar and K. R. Mangala)

To study the nutrients profile and carbondioxide flux in equatorial Indian ocean, Water
samples were collected from the top 1000 m using a seabird CTD- rosette system fixed
with 1.7 liter Niskin bottles at each station from 5° N to 5° S (half-a-degree stations from
3°N to 3°S and one-degree stations north of 3°N and south of 3°S) trans-equatorial
sections along 83°E. Subsamples were analyzed for the following parameters.

Nutrients (Nitrate, Nitrite, phosphate, silicate), Dissolved oxygen, TCO2., pH and Total
alkalinity
Dissolved oxygen was measured through winklers titration by Dosimat titrate. TCO2
were determined coulometry by following the SCOR protocols. Total alkalinity was
performed by open cell titration method. Spectro-photometry method (cresol red) was
carried out for pH determination. Nutrients were measured by following the manual
methods of Grasshoff et al. (1983) through spectrophotometer, some samples were
analyzed through onboard Skalar auto-analyzer.
Respiration experiment: To find out the influence of biological pump on the carbon cycle,
Community respiration rates were measured as oxygen consumption by the plankton
community in light and dark bottles incubated for 72 h. Water samples were collected at
83°E equator and 93°E equator at two different depths (65m and surface). Sub samples
were collected in 125 ml DO bottles, Two bottles were fixed immediately with Winkler’s
reagents for estimating initial dissolved oxygen concentration, and the remaining bottles
(Duplicate) were incubated at in-situ temperatures in the dark and light condition.
Subsamples (Duplicate) were taken at an interval of 12 h and measured with the Winkler
method. The rate of decrease in DO concentration of water sample represents the
pelagic respiration rate at that DO level. The details are given table No:7.9


7.6 XBT observations
(Sub-Team: Hendry Fernandes)

The expendable bathythermograph (XBT) of 780 m range were fired along 830E from
50N to 50S and up to 150N (off Goa) under the project GAP2018 and the details of the
data collection is given in table No.8.0
                                   8. CONCLUSIONS
The cruise SK-264 was successful with all scientific operations completed as per the
plan. However, the Sediment Trap belongs to INCOIS could not be deployed along with
the regular mooring equipment at 830E and Equator.

                                9. RECOMMENDATIONS
Deep-sea echo-sounder and Vacuum System may be kept in proper condition during
deep-sea and long term cruises.
