Introduction

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

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RV Corystes (74RY) cruise COR4/00
Short name COR4/00
Objectives and Narrative This is the third of a series of cruises planned to investigate the processes that influence productivity and the distribution and behaviour of suspended particulate matter and nutrients in the southern North Sea. Of particular interest is the movement of nutrients and particulate matter from UK waters towards the European coastal zone.
1. To service the Smart buoy at the Outer Gabbard.
2. To service Smart buoy and mini-pod at A1221 mooring.
3. To recover A1221 ADCP and current meter moorings.
4. To collect water samples and CTD profiles.
5. To complete Scanfish surveys.
6. To deploy satellite tracked drifting buoys.
