Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RRS Challenger (74CH) cruise CH25
Short name CH25
Objectives and Narrative 1. To make CTD transects across the shelf between the Mull of Galloway and Cape Wrath, and to collect radiocaesium samples upon selected transects for Fisheries Radiobiological Laboratory and SURRC, East Kilbride.
2. To service SMBA current meter moorings N1 and N2 near the Wyville-Thomson Ridge and moorings Y in the Tiree Passage, and to retrieve moorings V, W and X in the Little Minch and west of Lewis.
