Introduction

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

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RV Cirolana (74CZ) cruise CIR1/95
Short name CIR1/95
Objectives and Narrative 1. To complete off shore nutrient survey for MPMMG National Monitoring Programme (AE0503).
2. To deploy a mooring to test the NAS Mark 2 nutrient sampler and Valeport current meter. This will be launched in the Wash at the beginning of the cruise and recovered at the end of the cruise (AE0503).
3. To collect sediment samples near gas rigs in the southern North Sea for analysis for contamination with pseudo-oil based drilling muds. (AE0801).
4. To deploy the Tetrapod, the Quadrapod, 4 minipods, and the NERC STABLE benthic landers off the Holderness coast in phase 2 of the Holderness experiment. (AE0298(T)).
5. To survey Race Bank and area 107 using sidescan sonar and coring to determine whether dredger plumes are impinging on Race Bank. (AE0298(T))
6. To collaborate with the BBC and Open University Production Centre in the filming of the deployment of the benthic landers in the Holderness experiment. (AE0298(T)).
All the aims were successfully accomplished.
