BODC Cruise Metadata Report for FRV Clupea (74CU) cruise 1502C_2

Introduction

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

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name FRV Clupea (74CU) cruise 1502C_2
Short name 1502C_2
Objectives and Narrative 1) To conduct a hydrographic and plankton survey along a transect off Stonehaven.
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.
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 analysis at pre-determined stations on the Wee Bankie, Marr Bank and Berwick's Bank using a sandeel dredge.
