The purpose of the campaign was to begin studies of the environmental conditions and reconnaissance of the site. The measuring instruments used were; SonTek CastAway-CTD, and a Gopro Black 7 camera. were made a set of 12 temperature, salinity, and conductivity profiles. Water samples were also taken for subsequent microbiological analysis.
