Abstract:

The RV WECOMA cruise leg 6 emphasized the field work on the marine geology research program on Patterns and processes of continental margin sedimentation. This program constitutes a mesoscale study of processes controlling hemipelagic sediment distribution and composition beneath the coastal upwelling, non-upwelling and pelagic regimes of the equatorial East Pacific. It included field work of the optical oceanography group to help initiate cooperative research into a better understanding of the interrelation of ocean dynamics and the characteristics of suspended and bottom sediments.
