BODC Cruise Metadata Report for RRS Challenger (74CH) cruise CH65

Introduction

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

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RRS Challenger (74CH) cruise CH65
Short name CH65
Objectives and Narrative 1. To define spatial and temporal characteristics of the plumes emanating from the estuaries of the Humber and Wash within an area off the east coast of England.
2. To determine the principal mechanisms for transport of water borne conservation tracers away from estuary mouths in order to parameterise them in water quality models.
3. To determine pathways for non conservative tracers in plumes in relation to sediment/water interactions and biological processes in the water column.
4. To reinforce the study of sediment/water exchanges and bioturbation effects on water column chemistry through further work at the SERE resuspension sites previously studied during cruises 44, 52, 60.
