Introduction

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 JR20061003 (JR152, JR159)
Short name JR20061003 (JR152, JR159)
Objectives and Narrative During the 3 weeks prior to JR161 the JCR was primarily engaged in logistical duties with limited time allocated to science activities. Forty eight hours were allocated to AFI16-16 for larval fish sampling using the RMT8 and neuston net. A further 6 days were allocated to mooring deployments, the western core box and acoustic calibrations. A PCO2 analyser was also operated during this leg of the cruise. Sea conditions were generally rough during the 3 weeks and science time was lost from all science activities.
