    The present cruise, RV Pelagia cruise number 64PE440, is leg 11 of the NetherlandsInitiative Changing Oceans (NICO) expedition. The aim of this expedition was to gaininsight into the threats and opportunities of the currently changing oceans. During a totalof 12 legs about 100 scientists of over 20 organisations were trying to find (a part of the)answers to 40 research questions which form the scientific backbone of NICO. In additionto this many master students from Dutch Universities joined the various legs as part oftheir education to become future marine scientists.Also participating in the cruises were journalists, writers, photographers and artists. Theyreported not only on the scientific work, but also on their personal on board experienceswith the aim to inform the Dutch public on marine sciences, the scientific progress andthe `art’ of doing marine science,NICO leg 11 started on 4 July on Texel and ended in Horta, on the Azores, on 16 July.This leg was mainly meant as a transit leg. With adding just a few extra days of shipstime it would be possible to carry out a few relatively small activities along the way. Dueto technical problems (a burnt generator) the day of departure was delayed by one dayand the expected average sailing speed was lower than would normally be the case witha fully functional engine room. This meant that less time for science would be availableand unfortunately one of the aims of leg 11, piston and multicoring at several station onthe Madeira Abyssal Plain, had to be cancelled.The remaining activities during leg 11 included measurements on the ships noisemeasured by means of hydrophones suspended underneath a buoy, carried out byMARIN (Maritime Research Institute Netherlands), and an extended version of the NICOmaster student training program in which 6 students participated.The scientific crew was accompanied by a writer reporting on the cruise in a Dutchnational newspaper and a photographer/artist participating in S.E.A. (Science EncountersArt). The latter is a project which couples artists and NIOZ scientists with the aim toinform the public on how to make use of the sea in a sustainable manner.Cruise
