2007 Trans Future 5 Cruise
 

Trans Future 5

The volunteer observation ship MS Trans Future 5 services the area between New Zealand, Australia and Japan. The cruise took place in May - June 2007. The cruise area included a Pacific transect from Nelson, NZ to Japan. Sixty-eight (68) measurement series spanning 7 days were acquired during the cruise.

Dr. Mike Harvey, Mr. Ross Martin, and Mr. Tony Bromley from National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (Wellington, New Zealand) were Principal Investigators for aerosol optical measurements. Mr. Tony Bromley operated sun photometer onboard.

Acknowledgement

These measurements on the Trans Future 5 volunteer observing ship have been made possible through collaboration between the National Institute of Environmental Studies, Tsukuba, Japan in conjunction with the Toyofuji Shipping Company, and the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research, Wellington, New Zealand.
