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

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name SV Kommandor Jack cruise KJ0105
Short name KJ0105
Objectives and Narrative Objectives

Collect EM120 and where water depths permit, EM1002 multibeam and backscatter measurements and also high-resolution sidescan sonar data over selected areas of the Anton Dohrn Seamount, George Bligh and Rosemary Banks and, primarily, the eastern margin of Rockall Bank and selected areas of Hatton Bank.


Virtually all of the cruise objectives were achieved, although poor weather and fishing activities restricted the amount and location of high-resolution sidescan sonar surveying.
