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 JR20050829 (JR127)
Short name JR20050829 (JR127)
Objectives and Narrative Purpose of cruise is to address the following scientific questions: Where and how is energy dissipated in fjords? How does bioturbation vary in response to environmental variables? Are deep-sea proxy-indicators of environmental and climatic change applicable to high resolution sedimentary records in fjordic environment? What are the roles of physical submarine features in driving carbon flow through the benthic biosphere at the northern European continental margin? To what extent do benthic faunal composition and size structure determine processes of carbon dynamics and biogeochemical provinces at the benthic boundary?
Objectives:
1) Physical/Biological/Geochemical transect along Bear Island Fan
2) Physical/Biological/Geochemical transect along axis of Kongsfjord
3) Physical/Biological/Geochemical transect on the Voring Plateau
4) Physical/Biological/Geochemical transect on the Yermak Plateau
5) To service a mooring in Kongsfjord
6) To obtain piston cores in the Molloy Deep and Kongsfjord/Krossfjord
7) Hygrographic sections along&across the West Spitsbergen Shelf

Time was lost due to bad weather during the trip. In total around 85% of the work was completed.
Only objective 5) was fully achieved, objective 4) was lost due to a mixture of bad weather and ice cover.
All the other objectives were partly achieved.
