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

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RRS James Clark Ross (74JC) cruise JR20001217 (JR57)
Short name JR20001217 (JR57)
Objectives and Narrative BAS Biosciences MME/OED Programme
Cruise JR57 was the first in a series of cruises scheduled to be carried out annually for the Variability in the Southern Ocean Project (VSOE) which forms part of the OED (Ocean Ecosystem Dynamics) Programme. The programme is concerned with monitoring interannual oceanographic and biological variation in the region of South Georgia and ultimately to understand its causes.
