BODC Cruise Metadata Report for Fram cruise 2005 Loch Shieldaig

Introduction

This report collates information from the BODC cruise inventory and oceanographic databases. It presents

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name Fram cruise 2005 Loch Shieldaig
Short name 2005 Loch Shieldaig
Objectives and Narrative Two current meter mooring deployments, two tide gauge deployments and three drogue release experiments consisting of four drogues each were undertaken in Loch Shieldaig and Loch Torridon to develop a baroclinic circulation model of the area and permit prediction of surface currents and advection of sea lice. A weather station was also installed to monitor local winds, and a CTD survey was undertaken to investigate internal wave activity.
