BODC Cruise Metadata Report for RV Cirolana (74CZ) cruise CIR1/96

Introduction

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

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RV Cirolana (74CZ) cruise CIR1/96
Short name CIR1/96
Objectives and Narrative 1. To recover the Tetrapod, Quadrapod, 4 minipods and 6 current meter moorings at the end of their 2 month deployment to measure the impact of trawling and storms on the remobilisation of radionuclides from the Sellafield mudpatch (AE0135). This will assist in the continuing provision of the highest quality protection to the environment to safeguard human health, especially in relation to past discharges of radionuclides to the Irish Sea.
2. To undertake CTD and surface water sampling to measure the nutrient concentrations in the waters around England and Wales as part of the National Monitoring Programme (AE0503). This will help to establish the quality of the water around the UK in support of the UK's position in fora such as the Oslo and Paris Commission and the Ministerial North Sea Conference.
3. To deploy minipods and undertake sediment sampling on dredged spoil disposal grounds off Harwich and the Tees to determine the behaviour of sediments after disposal (AE0227). This will provide information to aid licensing decisions under FEPA II both for offshore disposals of dredged material and for the beneficial uses of such material in the near shore zone.
4. To deploy and recover a NAS2 (automatic monitoring nitrate analyser) and other instruments for the Joint Nutrient Study (JoNuS - AE0504, Smart Biophysical Moorings) and for National Monitoring Programme (AE0503). Successful trials should lead to improved temporal monitoring and a reduction in the costs of future monitoring.
5. To undertake a preliminary sediment coring survey near major estuaries in preparation for JoNuS 2 (AE0529(P)). This will guide the detailed selection of sites for the main programme commencing in April 1996 and ensure the successful and timely delivery of the scientific programme. The JoNuS 2 programme will help to establish the impact of nutrients discharged from land on coastal and offshore waters in support of UK policy development and in support of contributions to such fora as the Oslo and Paris Convention and the Ministerial North Sea Conference.
