Cruise Inventory Information

Long name CCGS Hudson cruise HUD07045 Leg2
Short name HUD07045 Leg2
Objectives and Narrative Objectives

The main objectives of the mission were:
- to obtain synoptic fall observations of the hydrography and the distributions of nutrients, phytoplankton, zooplankton and bacteria along three sections on the Scotian Shelf and one in Cabot Strait, i.e. to carry out the fall Atlantic Zone Monitoring Programme (AZMP).
- to retrieve and redeploy moorings along a section (SSB) across the slope waters of the central Scotian Shelf, in collaboration with members of the UK RAPID WAVE (West Atlantic Variability Experiment) programme. RAPID WAVE is funded by the UK Natural Environment Research Council.

The ship sailed to the slope waters of the central Scotian Shelf and the work begun in Leg 1 in collaboration with the British scientists was completed successfully (mooring retrievals and redeployments, CTD and water sampling). The ship then proceeded to the western Scotian Shelf, where an APEX float was deployed beyond the Scotian Shelf and AZMP sampling was carried out along the
Browns Bank line on the shelf, with MVP sampling between stations. The ship then returned to Halifax where the British scientists and the MVP operators disembarked.
