Introduction

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

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RRS Challenger (74CH) cruise CH110
Short name CH110
Objectives and Narrative 1. To work the CTD stations of the Anton Dohrn Seamount (Ellett Line) section, between the shelf-edge and Rockall to continue the Rockall Trough time-series as a UK contribution to WOCE Goal 2.
2. To recover and redeploy a temperature-salinity recorder and thermistor chain at station M of the Anton Dohrn Section.
3. To service the DML current meter mooring in the Tiree Passage.
4. To sample benthos at the SAMS Permanent Station (54 30'N, 12 16'W) and at station M using the epibenthic sled and the Agassiz trawl.
5. To collect a suite of physical, nutrient and biological profiles and samples at the shelf-edge west of Barra as part of the LOIS pilot studies and to attempt box-coring if time and weather permits.
6. To work the shelf-edge - Sound of Mull CTD section, with nutrient and chlorophyll sampling.
7. To work the PROFILE sampling stations around the Arran deep, as time permits.
8. To collect clean oceanic water for the Culture Collection.
