Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RRS Discovery cruise DY026B
Short name DY026B
Objectives and Narrative DY026 was funded as part of NERCs Shelf Sea Biogeochemistry (SSB) programme. This programme aims to reduce uncertainly in our process understanding of the cycling of nutrients and carbon, and the controls on primary and secondary production in both the UK and European shelf seas, and in wider global biogeochemical cycles. A series of long-term moorings and gliders were deployed in the Celtic Sea in early 2014 (DY008) and will remain in the water until late summer 2015. They will provide an unprecedented record of both physical and biogeochemical measurements across a full seasonal cycle providing the research community with (a) a long term record of the parameters controlling biogeochemical cycling rates and pathways, (b) a background against which to set process studies carried out on subsequent cruises and (c) essential data for model validation and development.

The main objective of this cruise was to service the moorings. Specifically:
(a) service 8 moorings/landers distributed across 5 different sites in the Celtic Sea
(b) calibrate the moorings

Mooring calibration was achieved via CTD casts pre-recovery and post-deployment. Samples were collected for DIC/TA, DIN, DON, Chl-a, SPM and oxygen. The shipboard CTD winch failed for a part of the cruise so the Cefas ESM2 profiler was deployed instead with water samples collected from the clean lab supply.

Additional CTDs were performed in between the main study sites to build a more complete cross-shelf picture of key biogeochemical and physical gradients (names A1-A5).

Most moorings were deployed on JC105 and were due to be serviced again on CEND22/14 and DY018.
