Cruise Inventory Information

Long name FRV Scotia (748S) cruise 0700S
Short name 0700S
Objectives and Narrative 1. To perform hydrographic surveys along the JONSIS standard section in the northern North Sea.
2. To perform hydrographic surveys along the standard Faroe Shetland Channel sections.
3. To perform a survey of bottom boundary layer mixing and water mass creation in the Faroe Shetland Channel.
4. To service one of the Nordic WOCE ADCP moorings.
5. To deploy a mooring east of Lerwick in support of the MAIA contract (if required following MAIA meeting).
6. To undertake coastal CTD surveys in support of the MAIA contract.
7. If time permits, to survey part of the Rockall Trough standard section (Ellett Line).
8. If equipment becomes available, to perform ad hoc sonar buoy and towed array acoustic recordings for cetaceans.
9. Throughout the trip, to undertake an exhaustive examination of nutrient sampling techniques and accuracies.
