Introduction

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

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RRS Discovery (74E3) cruise D180
Short name D180
Objectives and Narrative 1. To sample surface and subsurface radiocaesium and obtain CTD profiles at ten standard positions between the Sound of Mull and the shelf-edge, and to sample caesium at the surface of the North Channel.
2. To service the SMBA current emter mooring in the Tiree Passage.
3. To work the Anton Dohrn Seamount (Ellett Line) CTD section.
4. To obtain Craib corer or Shipek grab samples at a slecetion of sites upon the shelf and in deep water.
5. To sample midwinter temperature and salinity conditions by CTD in the NE Atlantic between Rockall, 53 30'N, 28W and the Porcupine Seabight.
6. To obtain surface chlorophyll and nutrient samples west of Britain as a preliminary to the 1989 BOFS cruises.
7. To obtain surface seawater from the Porcupine Seabight region for the Standard Seawater Service.
