Introduction

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

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RRS Challenger (74CH) cruise CH16/80
Short name CH16/80
Objectives and Narrative Recovery of current meters, thermistor chains and pressure recorders in the Celtic Sea plus a density survey incorporating continuous underway temperature and salinity measurements and CTD profiles. Scientific objective was to study sea level, vertical current structure and circulation patterns in the Celtic Sea whilst stratified.
