Narrative

Scotia sailed from Aberdeen at 1000 (all times are GMT) on Sunday 23 April for the start of the JONSIS standard section. CTD measurements and water sampling commenced at 2331 on Sunday 23 April. The line was completed at 1045 on Sunday 24 April (Stns 157-168).

Passage was made to the West of Shetland mooring position (60 45.83N 001 27.12W) to make a further attempt to locate the bottom half of this mooring. This mooring had been towed over by a seismic vessel late 2004. At the beginning of 2005 a current meter from this mooring was returned to FRS by personnel from the seismic vessel. On the latest information received from personnel aboard the seismic vessel a grid of 30 positions was surveyed to locate the remaining part of the mooring. Unfortunately, no signals were received back from interrogating the acoustic release on this mooring. It is unlikely that any further attempts will be made to recover the remaining part of this mooring.

Scotia then made passage to the start of the Nolso-Flugga line for CTD measurements and water sampling. Work commenced at 0507 on Tuesday 25 April. This line was stopped due to gale force conditions on two occasions and once for a sea cable failure. The line was eventually completed at 1931 on Thursday 27 April (Stns 169-184).
