External user’s cruise plan
For precruise plans and postcruise reports for cruises on the R/V Rachel Carson or the R/V Western Flyer, MBARI employees may submit their cruise plans and search for cruise data via the Expedition Database.
If you are not an employee, please use the Cruise Plan (MS Word template) and return by e-mail.
Shiptime request forms
Internal users should use the MBARI Budget Entry System (active during the proposal process) to add ship time requests with proposal submissions. Please be sure to note the transit time for extended cruises (transit time is charged to projects.)
External users should complete the External Ship Time Request form. Questions can be directed to Marine Operations Deputy Director, Chris Grech.
The Chief Scientist can refer to the berthing assignment plan for assigning staterooms. Stateroom assignments should be included in the text of your precruise. This form can be printed and posted on the Chief Scientist’s door.
