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

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RV Corystes (74RY) cruise COR1B/94
Short name COR1B/94
Objectives and Narrative 1. To test the new Minipod frame and logger system over 2 tides and to evaluate the results.
2. To compare the bed shear stresses, both tidally and wave generated on two sites (Race Bank typically 10-12 water depth) and another site to the East with water depth of 20 m). The ADCP (Acoustic Doppler current Profiler) and CTD will be used to supplement measurements from a Minipod.
3. To undertake a sediment survey around the proposed site of the long term deployment of a Minipod on Race Bank.
4. To conduct a sidescan survey around the proposed long term deployment site.
5. To deploy a Minipod and Guard Buoys on the long term site for recovery on CIRO 4/94.
