Introduction

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

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RRS Challenger (74CH) cruise CH22
Short name CH22
Objectives and Narrative 1. To work CTD sections across the Scottish continental shelf between the North Channel and Cape Wrath, including part of the Ellett Line, with radiocaesium sampling for MAFF and the Scottish Universities Research and Reactor Centre upon a number of sections.
2. To service the SMBA current meter mooring in the Tiree Passage (mooring Y) and to lay moorings in the Little Minch (V and W) and to the west of Lewis (X).
3. To deploy a satellite-tracked drogue over a number of 25-hr periods at locations in the coastal current, and to obtain acoustic doppler current profiles over similar periods of time.
4. To convey a Cambridge Dept. of Zoology party from St Kilda to Oban at the end of the cruise.
