Introduction

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

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RRS Challenger (74CH) cruise CH30
Short name CH30
Objectives and Narrative 1. To make CTD transects across the Scottish continental shelf between the Mull of Galloway and the Butt of Lewis, and to collect radiocaesium samples upon selected transects.
2. To service SMBA current meter moorings N2 and N3 near the Wyville-Thomson Ridge and mooring Y in the Tiree Passage, and to retrieve five Bidston current meter moorings and two bottom pressure recorders from the St. Kilda shelf and slope.
3. To work CTD sections in the vicinity of the Wyville-Thomson Ridge and across Faroe Bank.
4. To make observations of the distribution of seabirds, especially in relation to feeding flocks and hydrographic structure, and to collect specimens in the North Channel and an offshore area.
5. To work CTD sections on the outer St. Kilda shelf in the vicinity of the Bidston moorings.
6. To work the Ellett Line section between Mull and the Anton Dohrn Seamount.
