BODC Cruise Metadata Report for RV Corystes (74RY) cruise CO 01/12

Introduction

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

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RV Corystes (74RY) cruise CO 01/12
Short name CO 01/12
Objectives and Narrative Biological Oceanography/EEF Malin Survey/NIEA Coastal Winter Nutrient Survey

Objectives

1. To maintain an insitu monitoring programme in the Irish Sea, Celtic Sea and Liverpool Bay
2. To investigate the distribution of dissolved nutrients and phytoplankton in the water column in the Irish Sea, Celtic Sea and Malin Sea
3. To provide an assessment of nutrient distribution across the Northern Ireland coastal WFD water bodies
4. To provide data towards the assessment of chemical and biological trends in the marine environment (CSSEG)

Methods

Stations were profiled using a Seabird SBE 32 water sampler and SBE 911 CTD
Salinity, temperature, fluorescence and position were continuously recorded using a Seabird SBE 21 thermosalinograph
Vertical zooplankton net hauls were taken using a 200 micron mesh bongo net with a 500mm diameter inlet.
