Introduction

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

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RRS Charles Darwin (74AB) cruise CD50
Short name CD50
Objectives and Narrative 1. To observe the path of the overflow water in the Iceland Basin on the south side of the Iceland Faroes Ridge using a lowered CTD, XBTs and ship mounted ACDP (Acoustic Dropper Current Profiler)/
2. To determine the chemical properties (nutrients, dissolved oxygen and aluminium concentration) of the Overflow and Atlantic water masses.
3. To deploy an array of moored current and temperature recorders south of Iceland
4. To deploy a moored ACDP on the Iceland-Faroes Ridge in support of Charles Darwin Cr51
