BODC Cruise Metadata Report for RV Sea Vigil (74S9) cruise SV1B

Introduction

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

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RV Sea Vigil (74S9) cruise SV1B
Short name SV1B
Objectives and Narrative 1. To develop sampling and ground-truthing protocols for use on subsequent surveys in support of CASI airborne remote sensing of estuarine and coastal waters within LOIS.
2. To obtain measurements of the optical characteristics of estuarine waters that would be relevant to the interpretation of remotely sensed (aircraft) images.
3. To measure and characterise water quality parameters which influence the absorption and reflection of light.
