    The aim of the ECOgaps is to improve the knowledgebase on physical conditions and biota east of the 0 meridian in the MPA planning Domain 4. Focusing on the Astrid ridge, the continental shelf off of Dronning Maud Land, and the Maud rise, multidisciplinary investigations will be conducted in 2019 by the RV Kronprins Haakon. In this working document, the cruise being planned is outlined. Aims and activities of the six scientific work-packages of the project are described.
