Science Cruise Planning

Pre-Cruise InfoPre-Cruise Information

This section contains information, links, and documents regarding contracting, scheduling, and science planning information for both the R/V Kilo Moana and R/V Ka’imikai-o-Kanaloa, as well as the UH Marine Center small boats. This section also contains information regarding shore-side facilities & resources usage, hazardous materials,laboratory safety, radioactive materials, pre-cruise forms and documents and more.

Forms

Forms

This section contains important and commonly used forms in one place, to help when planning a cruise with the University of Hawaii. Available in this section are waiver forms, berthing forms, cruise planning forms, and policy form for both the R/V Kilo Moana and R/V Ka’imikai-O-Kanaloa.

Hazardous materials, including chemical and radioactive substances, must be handled according to University of Hawaii and University-National Oceanographic Laboratory System (UNOLS) guidelines. This section provides guidance for scientists who are planning to use hazardous materials aboard ship.

 

S-LAB

Biogeochemical Analyses

The SOEST Laboratory for Analytical Biogeochemisty (S-LAB) provides analyses at a per sample rate, as well as access to several instruments for user-based sample analysis and sample pickup. A description of instrumentation housed at S-LAB, laboratory procedures & protocols, a price list and quality control data from the instrumentation are provided on their website.

 

Gravity Station

Gravity Station

The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency surveyed two relative gravity stations at the UH Marine Center in 2015. One is pier side at the 550 foot mark and a second is near the warehouse offices. The survey report is here.
