Introduction

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

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RRS Challenger (74CH) cruise CH114
Short name CH114
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 possibly 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 obtain 137Cs, 234Th and 210Pb samples at CTD stations in the Sea of Hebrides for the DML/SURRC LOIS Special Topic.
5. To sample benthos at the SMBA Permanent Station (54 40'N, 12 16'W) using the epibenthic sled.
6. To collect a suite of physical, nutrient and biological profiles and samples, including coring, at the shelf-edge.
7. To obtain sulphate reduction and oxygen uptake measurements on multiple corer samples taken across the shelf edge on the LOIS line.
8. To sample benthos using the epibenthic sled on the 2500m contour and also at Station M and on the slope as time and weather permit.
9. To test the Strathclyde University multi-parameter instrument.
10. To collect samples for the EC MAST II Genetic variations in deep sea populations project.
