Introduction

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

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RRS Challenger (74CH) cruise CH36
Short name CH36
Objectives and Narrative Physical Oceanography (second in a series of process cruises). This was the second process study cruise of the North Sea Project, involving:
The deployment of a SEASOAR system.
A CTD survey with the aim of broadly mapping the Flamborough Head frontal system. Once the broad survey was complete, a section was singled out for more intensive survey.
Deployment of drifting buoys.
