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 PD11/11
Short name PD11/11
Objectives and Narrative Site A, 53 32? N, 3 21.8? W

To recover:
a) A sea bed frame containing a 600 kHz RDI ADCP (acoustic Doppler current profiler, measuring mean current profile, pressures and directional waves), SeaBird SBE 16plus (with pumped conductivity sensor), Digiquartz pressure sensor, a SeaPoint turbidity sensor with wiper and SeaBirdSBE 16plus with an Aanderaa oxygen Optode.
b) Cefas SmartBuoy (including the new weather station system) in a single point mooring. Temperature mini-loggers are attached to the mooring wire at 7.5 m and 15 m below the surface and a SeaBird MicroCAT temperature and conductivity logger at 10 m below the surface. A frame containing a WET Labs ac-s unit (measuring spectra of absorption and attenuation), WET Labs fluorometer and
SeaBird MicroCAT is attached at 5 m below the surface.

To deploy:
c) A seabed frame containing a 600 kHz RDI ADCP (measuring mean current profile, pressures and directional waves), SeaBird SBE 16plus (with pumped conductivity sensor), Digiquartz pressure sensor, a SeaPoint turbidity sensor with wiper and SeaBird SBE 16plus with an Aanderaa oxygen Optode.
d) Cefas SmartBuoy in a single point mooring. Temperature mini-loggers are attached to the mooring wire at 7.5 m and 15 m below the surface and a SeaBird MicroCAT temperature and conductivity logger at 10 m below the surface. A frame containing a WET Labs ac-s unit, WET Labs fluorometer and SeaBird MicroCAT is attached at 5 m below the surface.

Site B, 53 32.3? N, 3 38.4? W (CTD station 20)

To recover:
a) A sea bed frame for a 600 kHz RDI ADCP measuring mean current profile, pressures and directional waves, a SeaBird SBE 16plus (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 SeaBird MicroCAT temperature, conductivity loggers at 5 m
