Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RRS Challenger (74CH) cruise CH1/85
Short name CH1/85
Objectives and Narrative The objectives of this cruise were:
(1) To recover two current meter moorings in the North Channel and deploy another. One recovered: other lost. Deployment accomplished.
(2) To service moorings at S (SE Islay), Y (Tiree Passage) and F (57.5N, 12.25W). Accomplished.
(3) To collect large-volume radiocaesium samples at 3 depths on CTD sections between Copeland and Portpatrick and the Sound of Mull and the shelf break. Accomplished with additional surface samples in the Northern Irish Sea and North Minch..
(4) To work CTD sections across the Rockall Channel, the Scottish shelf and in the Firth of Clyde. Alternate stations of Rockall via Anton Dohrn Seamount (Ellett Line) worked plus extensive coastal sections on the grid and an extensive grid of stations in the Firth of Clyde, Kilbrannan Sound and Lower Loch Fyne.
