BODC Cruise Metadata Report for RRS Discovery (74E3) cruise D69

Introduction

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

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RRS Discovery (74E3) cruise D69
Short name D69
Objectives and Narrative The aims were to study the physical, biological and chemical processes involved in upwelling off the NW African Coast with particular emphasis on the measurement of onshore/offshore and longshore water movements and the realtionships of phytoplankton, zooplankton and micronekton distribution to them.
This was part of a 2-ship exercise with FS Meteor.
