Abstract

We would like to express our deepest gratitude to Captain Hartmut Andresen and all crew members of the RV Sonne for their expert help, advice, and professionalism. No dredges were lost thanks to their diligent and expert control of both the RV Sonne and the dredging winch. Minor hydraulic problems with the TV-grab were quickly repaired and it was always available for the next station. These are significant achievements considering the difficulties of handling a research ship, winches, and other equipment while dredging old MnOx-encrusted seamounts in variable sea conditions and under considerable time pressure. We also thank the Governments of Columbia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, and Panama for granting permission to work within their territorial waters. The Government of Costa Rica also granted permission for landing on Cocos Island, which allowed us to obtain important samples for comparative purposes.
