In this cruise report, we detail the geophysical, hydrographic, geological, oceanographic, and ecological surveys carried out onboard the N/Oc Alpha Crucis of the Instituto Oceanográfico da Universidade de São Paulo during 22 days (28 January 2018 to 19 February 2018) to Rio De Grande (RDG). The goal of the RDG cruise (RDG1) was to gather multidisciplinary data to supplement and expand previous environmental studies of RGR, to serve as baseline data on understanding Fe-Mn deposit formation, and environmental assessments for possible future mining activities on the RGR.
