This was the eighteenth in the series of Atlantic Meridional Transect (AMT) cruises, and was carried out on board the British Antarctic Survey research vessel the RRS James Clark Ross. The cruise sailed from Immingham in the United Kingdom on 4th October 2008, and ended in Port Stanley, The Falkland Islands, on November 10th, 2008. This is the first of a new series of AMT cruises funded through Theme 10b of the NERC OCEANS 2025 science programme, which is a scientific collaboration between Plymouth Marine Laboratory (PML) and the National Oceanography Centre, Southampton (NOC,S). This is now the third phase of the AMT with the first 11 cruises between 1995 and 2000, funded by PML, NERC and NASA. Phase 2 was between 2002 and 2005 and was funded by a NERC consortium grant with many institutions from around the UK contributing to the scientific aims, and this was led by Carol Robinson at PML. The AMT-18 Participants were an International team gathered from PML, NOC, University of Warwick, Bigelow Laboratory of Ocean Sciences, USA, University of Newcastle, The Natural History Museum London, The British Antarctic Survey, and the Universidad de la Republica, Montevideo, Uruguay.
