Objectives and Narrative Objectives

At site A 53 32 N, 3 21.8 W (CTD station 1)

To recover:
a) A sea bed frame containing a 600kHz RDI ADCP (waves ADCP), Sea-Bird SBE 16+, digiquartz pressure sensor, SeaPoint turbidity sensor with wiper, and a Sea-Bird 16plus with an Aanderra oxygen optode.
b) CEFAS SmartBuoy in a single point mooring. Attached to the mooring wire are Sea-Bird MicroCat temperature, conductivity loggers at 5 and 10m below the surface and miniloggers at 7.5 and 15 m below the surface.

To deploy:
a) A sea bed frame containing a 600kHz RDI ADCP (measuring mean current profile, pressures and directional waves), Sea-Bird SBE 16+ (with pumped conductivity sensor), digiquartz pressure sensor, a SeaPoint turbidity sensor with wiper and Sea-Bird SBE 16+ (with an Aanderra oxygen optode).
b) CEFAS SmartBuoy in a single point mooring. Attached to the mooring wire are Sea-Bird MicroCat (temperature+conductivity) loggers at 5m and 10m below the surface and miniloggers at 7.5 and 15 m below the surface.

To collect 10 vertical zooplankton hauls for CEFAS.


At site B 53 32.3 N, 3 38.4 W (CTD station 20) (new site also referred to as B)

To recover
a) A sea bed frame containing a 600 kHz RDI ADCP, a Sea-Bird SBE 16+, digiquartz pressure sensor and a SeaPoint turbidity sensor fitted with a wiper.
b) A CEFAS SmartBuoy in a single point mooring including a new water sampler for trials. Attached to the mooring wire are Sea-Bird MicroCat temperature, conductivity loggers at 5 and 10m below the surface and miniloggers at 7.5 and 15 m below the surface.

To deploy
a) A sea bed frame for a 600 kHz RDI ADCP measuring mean current profile, pressures and directional waves. A Sea-Bird SBE 16+ (with pumped conductivity sensor), digiquartz pressure sensor and a SeaPoint turbidity sensor (fitted with a wiper).
b) A CEFAS SmartBuoy in a single point mooring. Attached to the mooring wire are Sea-Bird MicroCat temperature, conductivity loggers at 5m and 10m below the surface and miniloggers at 7.5 and 15 m below the surface.

To conduct a CTD / LISST survey of 34 sites every 5 miles covering the eastern Irish Sea between the North Wales coast and Blackpool, and the Lancashire coast and the Great Orme, to determine the effects of the rivers Dee, Mersey and Ribble on Liverpool Bay. To obtain calibration samples for salinity, transmittance and suspended sediment at selected stations. To obtain near surface and bed water samples for nutrient (nitrate, phosphate, silicate) and suspended sediment determination. To obtain surface samples for a Defra pH study by David Hydes (NOCS). Collect water samples for trace metal analysis from a selected number of CTD locations (Pascal Salaun, University of Liverpool).

Collect sediment samples at each CTD site with a Day grab for Andy Plater (University of Liverpool).
