BODC Cruise Metadata Report for RV Prince Madog (74P2) cruise PD02/10

Introduction

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

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RV Prince Madog (74P2) cruise PD02/10
Short name PD02/10
Objectives and Narrative A. To recover and deploy an ADCP mooring and a CEFAS Smartbuoy at 53 32 N 3 21.8 W.
B. To recover an ADCP mooring and a Smartbuoy at 53 27 N 3 38.6 W.
C. To relocate (B) to a new permanent position 53 32.3 N 3 38.4 W
D. To obtain CTD profiles, water samples and sediment grab samples at 34 Coastal Observatory sites.

The cruise is the 66th in a series starting in August 2002 to maintain the moorings in objective (A+B) and to make CTD profiles at fixed locations (C) in Liverpool Bay / the eastern Irish Sea. Weather restricted CTD profiles to 18 of the planned 34 stations.
