Narrative

Scotia sailed from Aberdeen at 0930 (all times are GMT) on Tuesday 2 October for the start of the JONSIS standard section. On route a test dip of the 911+ CTD was performed. CTD measurements and water sampling commenced at 2335 on Tuesday 2 October. During the sampling of this line the CTD cable required re-terminating resulting in a 3 hour stoppage. The line was completed at 1206 on Wednesday 3 October (Stns.401 - 412).

Scotia then made passage to the start of the Fair Isle - Munken standard section for CTD measurements and water sampling. Work commenced at 1850 on Wednesday 3 October and the line was worked until 2128 to allow the recovery and redeployment of the ADCP moorings NWSD and NWSE the following morning.

Passage was made overnight to the ADCP mooring position NWSE (60 16.61 N 004 20.11'W). Despite receiving communications from the acoustic release that this mooring had been released it failed to surface. Interrogating the acoustic release showed that it was still attached to the anchor. It was decided to make passage to ADCP mooring NWSD (60 26.96 N 004 22.54 W) and recover this mooring. Mooring NWSD was duly recovered at 0840 on Thursday 4 October and the data downloaded. Passage was then made back to mooring NWSE to attempt to make recovery using a creeper and the recovery trawl. Despite several hours trying to dislodge the mooring from its anchor it failed to surface.
