BODC Cruise Metadata Report for FRV Scotia (749S) cruise 1096S

Introduction

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

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name FRV Scotia (749S) cruise 1096S
Short name 1096S
Objectives and Narrative 1. To perform hydrographic surveys along the standard Faroe-Shetland Channel sections using a CTD with rosette water sampler. A vessel mounted ADCP and thermosalinograph will also be run continuously.
2. To perform a more detailed hydrographic survey of the Faroe Shetland Channel and Faroe Bank Channel area.
3. To recover, service and redeploy a single ADCP mooring at the shelf edge west of Shetland.
4. To locate the surface signal of mesoscale eddies within the Faroe Shetland Channel, seed an eddy with drifting buoys and recover the buoys.
5. Perform ad hoc CTD surveys in order to locate the deep pycnocline at up to five locations north of the Wyville-Thomson Ridge, and to deploy and recover a temporary mooring at each location for a duration of approximately 30 hours at each site.
6. To perform experimental trawls in order to assess gear suitability and the feasibility of catching salmon post-smolts at sea.
7. To perform experimental hauls using an adapted Methot net in order to catch live eel leptocephali for subsequent filming and studies.
8. To perform hydrographic surveys along the JONSIS standard section if time permits.
