Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RRS Discovery cruise DY033 (GApr04 Leg3)
Short name DY033 (GApr04 Leg3)
Objectives and Narrative Cruise DY033 was the summer pelagic cruise of the NERC/Defra-funded Shelf Sea Biogeochemistry (SSB) research programme. The main objectives of the cruise were:
1. To make times-series process measurements at the Central Celtic Sea (CCS) site, the shelf edge site (CS2) and benthic workpackage sampling site 'A' to examine the functioning of the shelf sea biogeochemical system in the post spring bloom stratified period;
2. To make a number of observations at other sites across the Celtic Sea in order to put the main process sites into a wider context;
3. To continue the mooring record at the CCS site through the recovery of an ADCP chain, temperature chain and bedframe;
4. Deploy, and where appropriate recover, a series of gliders (including long-term and short-term deployments of Ocean Microstructure Gliders (OMGs), a Slocum glider with nitrate sensor and a further Slocum glider;
5. Deploy and recover two Wirewalker moorings at CCS;
6. Collect samples for the measurement of iron and other trace metals/isotopes along two transects at the shelf edge (WP3 of the SSB programme).
