Cruise Inventory Datasets

Physical oceanography  
Optics (eg underwater light levels) Description: Vertical profiles taken to measure light spectra and light penetration.  
Surface measurements underway (T,S) Description: Underway surveying was started using the Undulating Oceanographic Recorder. The surveying was started from approximately off North Killingholme and continued along an axial track following the main navigation channel to seaward.  
Surface measurements underway (T,S) Description: Water samples were taken at half hourly intervals from 1m below surface to determine salinity levels and DOC.  
Contamination  
Suspended matter Description: Underway surveying was started using the Undulating Oceanographic Recorder. The surveying was started from approximately off North Killingholme and continued along an axial track following the main navigation channel to seaward.  
Suspended matter Description: Water samples taken at half hourly intervals from 1m below surface to determine particle size distribution.  
Suspended matter Description: Along an axial track starting from North Killinghome and following the main navigation channel, water samples were taken at half hourly intervals from 1m below surface.  
Biology and fisheries  
Dissolved organic matter (inc DOC) Description: Water samples were taken at half hourly intervals from 1m below surface to determine salinity levels and DOC.  
Phytoplankton pigs (eg chlorophyll, fluorescence) Description: Underway surveying was started using the Undulating Oceanographic Recorder. The surveying was started from approximately off North Killingholme and continued along an axial track following the main navigation channel to seaward.  
Phytoplankton pigs (eg chlorophyll, fluorescence) Description: Along an axial track starting from North Killinghome and following the main navigation channel, water samples were taken at half hourly intervals from 1m below surface.
