Supplementary data:


The expedition ARK XIX/3 with the German icebreaking RV "Polarstern" was jointly organized between the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research (AWI) and the Institut Français de Recherche pour l'Exploitation de la mer (IFREMER), the latter providing the unmanned deep-sea submersible "Victor 6000".
AWI and IFREMER offered this unique combination of infrastructure in 2003 to European scientists to permit access on advanced technology in marine research to a broader community. Therefore, this cruise was not only a milestone in the Franco-German cooperation but also an important contribution to the European marine research initiatives.
All still pictures and videos taken with "Victor 6000" during the expedition "VICTOR IN
THE NORTH" are joint property of AWI and IFREMER with copyright by IFREMER.
This material can be used for scientific purposes with the indication of IFREMER's copyright. It would be very much appreciated if the joint effort of AWI and IFREMER in organising the cruise ARK XIX/3 would be mentioned in the acknowledgements of any future publication written on the basis of material collected during the expedition.
Any commercial or other than scientific use of either pictures or videos collected with "Victor 6000" needs the written formal approval of IFREMER.
The entire cruise report is also available in digital format on a CD-ROM attached to this booklet because many of the pictures and graphs are in colour. All hand written dive log files are permanently stored at the AWI. For a certain period of time the cruise diary will be still accessible via the internet at
