Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RRS James Clark Ross (74JC) cruise JR20110319 (JR252, JR254C)
Short name JR20110319 (JR252, JR254C)
Objectives and Narrative One mooring was recovered and two were deployed in the northern Weddell Sea, to extend long-term measurements of the export of Weddell Sea Deep and Bottom Water in the Weddell Gyre by Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (LDEO), Columbia University. Two moorings were recovered and five were deployed in Orkney Passage, to extend long-term time series measuring the export of Weddell Sea Deep Water through Orkney Passage; these moorings are maintained in collaboration between BAS and LDEO, and form part of BAS Long-term Monitoring and Survey project. In addition, CTD profiles were obtained at the locations of deployed and recovered moorings.

During the cruise a tethered and a free-floating spar buoy, as well as a tethered balloon were deployed to measure the effect of breaking waves on air/sea interaction and gas exchange. This was part of the WAGES project, National Oceanography Centre, Southampton and University of Leeds.
