From 07 November to 02 December 2022, the research cruise with the research vessel Heincke through the North Sea and Baltic Sea took place. The aim of the cruise is to investigate pelagic and benthic processes that control the coastal carbon sink. In addition, the understanding of the carbon cycle is to be improved, especially with the collection of wintertime data. Thus, this research cruise complements the North Sea cruise conducted in June 2021.

Due to bad weather conditions, the cruise could not be carried out as planned.
