Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RRS Discovery cruise DY018 (GApr04 Leg1)
Short name DY018 (GApr04 Leg1)
Objectives and Narrative Cruise DY018 was the autumn/winter cruise associated with the NERC/Defra-funded Shelf Sea Biogeochemistry research programme. The work was largely focused on pelagic biogeochemical processes on the Celtic Sea shelf and the adjacent shelf slope, deliberately targeting the time of year when the surface mixed layer is deepening convectively towards winter. There were 5 main objectives:
1. Carry out 2 process stations, one on the shelf and one at the shelf edge, to measure biogeochemical rates through the water column.
2. Carry out 2 transects of stations over the shelf slope to the shelf edge, measuring biogeochemical states and also iron chemistry.
3. Carry out a broader survey of biogeochemical states and iron chemistry across the wider shelf.
4. Service an array of moored instrumentation in the central Celtic Sea.
5. Deploy both long-term and short-term gliders in the Celtic Sea and at the shelf edge. The short-term gliders were recovered before the end of the cruise.
The cruise has highly successful, largely because of remarkably good weather considering the expectations for the time of year. Process stations were carried out in the central Celtic Sea (CCS) and at the shelf edge (CS2), each lasting about 3 days. Work on these stations typically comprised CTDs for water sample collection and autotrophic and bacterial rate measurements; use of the Marine Snowcatcher and Standalone Pumps for particle characterisation and remineralisation rates; WP2 zooplankton net hauls for biomass, species and grazing rates; and cores for very-near-bed water sampling and ammonia release experiments. Two cross-slope transects, each consisting of 7 stations between depths of 2500m and 200m, were carried out to measure iron chemistry and radium. A line of CTD stations was run from the shelf edge, through the central Celtic Sea mooring site and up into the Celtic Deep (A). Measurements at these stations were made for basic iron chemistry and biogeochemical states. An array or moorings in the central Celtic Sea was recovered and redeployed. A separate wirewalker mooring was deployed at the start of the cruise, recovered/redeployed partway through the cruise (because it had come adrift from its bottom anchor) and recovered towards the end of the cruise. 5 gliders were deployed, Two were recovered towards the end of the cruise, as planned. One of the long-term gliders running along a line over the shelf slope appears to have been lost already.
