Introduction

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

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RRS Challenger (74CH) cruise CH8/85
Short name CH8/85
Objectives and Narrative 1. To make CTD transects across the shelf between the Mull of Galloway and Cape Wrath, and to collect radiocaesium samples for analysis by Glasgow University and the Fisheries Radiobiological Laboratory, Lowestoft, on certain transects.
2. To collect bottom cores in the North Channel and Sea of the Hebrides for the Fisheries Radiobiological Laboratory, Lowestoft.
3. To repeat a CTD survey of the Firth of Clyde and Kilbrannan Soung.
4. To service SMBA mooring Y in the Tiree Passage, and to deploy a deep mooring on the eastern flank of Anton Dohrn Seamount for recovery in December or March.
5. To work the Anton Dohrn Seamount (Ellett Line) CTD section.
6. To make instrument tests of the Neil Brown 'Smart' CTD and the Bissett-Berman CTDs in a variety of environments, including the Norwegian Sea deep water.
7. To test the suitability of the Interocean S4 current meter for obtaining depth profiles of currents at the shelf edges.
8. To observe seabirds around the Hebrides for the Nature Conservancy Council Seabirds at Sea Programme.
