Introduction

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

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RRS Discovery cruise DY008
Short name DY008
Objectives and Narrative The core objective of the cruise was to collect samples and data to understand how the chemistry and biology of the Celtic Sea link together to drive healthy and productive conditions, as well as how those conditions might change with climate change. It is one of a series of cruises in the NERC Shelf Sea Biogeochemistry Programme.
