Introduction

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

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name FS Meteor (06M3) cruise M27_1
Short name M27_1
Objectives and Narrative Study of water column and benthic processes on a section across the Goban Spur in the Celtic Sea. Scientific work was severely limited by adverse weather conditions. Whilst sampling of the water column on the primary section was accomplished, only one sediment sample was obtained.
