BODC Cruise Metadata Report for FRV Clupea (74CU) cruise 1603C

Introduction

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

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name FRV Clupea (74CU) cruise 1603C
Short name 1603C
Objectives and Narrative 1. To conduct a hydrographic survey along a transect off Stonehaven. At pre-selected locations the Seabird CTD sampler and the dual Bongo net will be deployed using a vertical dip. Water samples will be collected for salinity, nutrient and phytoplankton analysis. The 1 m plankton net will be deployed using a double oblique tow between selected stations along the transect.
2. To determine spatial variation in the water temperature, salinity, fluorometric and turbidity profiles within the main Wee Bankie/Marr Bank study area by CTD-fluorometer-transmissometer dips. Approximately 40 vertical dip stations will be sampled utilising as far as possible the day grab survey stations
3. To carry out a night-time grab survey to assess sandeel abundance and distribution in sediments previously determined as suitable sandeel habitat. The sediment samples collected during this survey will be used to assess the RoxAnn derived sandeel habitat map.
4. To obtain samples of sandeels for population age structure analyses at pre-determined stations on the Wee Bankie, Marr Bank and Berwick's Bank using a sandeel dredge.
