BODC Cruise Metadata Report for RRS Shackleton cruise S5/79

Introduction

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

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RRS Shackleton cruise S5/79
Short name S5/79
Objectives and Narrative The aims of this cruise were:
(1) To service the shelf current meter mooring at 57N, 9W. Accomplished.
(2) To lay current meter moorings in the Little Minch for the duration of the cruise. Accomplished, but one meter suffered from jellyfish fouling.
(3) Make a comprehensive CTD survey of the shelf to the west of Scotland. CTD sections worked northwards on the shelf from the North Channel to Cape Wrath, plus five sections from the slope to the west coasts of the islands..
(4) To make CTD observations to examine the paths of the Norwegian Sea deep water overflow into the northern Rockall Channel. Stations worked between the shelf edge and the Ymir Ridge.
(5) To work the Rockall via Anton Dohrn Seamount (Ellett Line) CTD section. Not done due to lack of time.
(6) To lay two fouling study moorings to the west of South Uist.
(7) To collect large-volume surface water samples for radiocaesium analysis, accompanied by CTD profiles, at stations across the Scottish continental shelf. Sampling accomplished at all ten stations, but CTDs only possible on the five westernmost stations.
(8) To send near real-time temperature profiles to the Met Office. Accomplished.
