Introduction

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

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RRS Challenger (74CH) cruise CH10/84
Short name CH10/84
Objectives and Narrative 1. To recover current meter mooring LG in Beaufort's Dyke, North Channel and to relay it with two additional moorings, LE and LF, for recovery in January 1985.
2. To collect bottom cores for plutonium analysis at the current meter sites LE, LF and LG in the North Channel and to take near bottom 60 litre water samples at the coring stations for the Fisheries Laboratory, Lowestoft.
3. To service SMBA current meter moorings F (57 30.60'N, 12 13.3'W) and Y (Tiree Passage) and to lay a near surface current mooring S South-east of Islay (55 35.0'N, 6 3.0'W) to work the CTD section from Rockall to the Anton Dohrn Seamount (Ellett Line).
4. To work shelf CTD sections from the northern Irish Sea to the Butt of Lewis and to collect radiocaesium samples on some sections for Chemistry Department, Glasgow University.
5. To collect surface, midwater and near-bottom samples for radiocaesium determination by the Fisheries Laboratory, Lowestoft, at ten standard positions between the Sound of Mull and the shelf edge, to make CTD observations at these sites and to take cores at stations with suitable bottom deposits.
6. To make a CTD survey of the Clyde Sea area.
