Liquid Robotics Wave Glider, Honey Badger (G3), 2015, AIS

Liquid Robotics Wave Glider, Honey Badger (G3), 2015, AIS. The MAGI mission is to use the Wave Glider to sample the late summer chlorophyll bloom that develops near 30°N, with the goal of using the camera and LISST-Holo to try to identify species in the blooms and then follow the development of phytoplankton aggregates. These aggregates have recently been shown to be a significant part of the total amount of carbon that sinks to the deep sea. Karl et al (2012) found that in each of the past 13 years, there was a flux of material to 4,000 m (the summer export pulse) that represented ~20% of the total annual flux. Work based on satellite ocean color data over the past decade has revealed the existence of large phytoplankton blooms in the Pacific Ocean that cover thousands of km2, persist for weeks or longer, and are often dominated by nitrogen-fixing diatom symbioses (Wilson et al. 2008). We hope to be able to examine whether this aggregation is occurring in the vast oceanic regions north and east of Hawai'i and provide a basin-scale context for the ALOHA observations. These events have proven difficult to study outside of the time series station ALOHA at Hawai'i.
