Introduction

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

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RV Prince Madog (74P2) cruise PD04/07
Short name PD04/07
Objectives and Narrative The objectives are to recover COBS Smart Buoy and deploy moored instrumentation, i.e. STABLE III and mini-STABLE frames at the mouth of the River Dee. Also to carry out CTD observations for at least a tidal cycle in the Welsh Channel and the Hilbre Swash, to study turbulence and SPM processes. To Carry out a side scan sonar survey of the Hirbre Swash.

In the following narrative all times are UMT The Prince Madog was loaded on the 12/03/2003, Mini-STABLE, was loaded. We sailed from Menai Bridge at 06:30 on the 13/03/2007. Recovered Smart Buoy and telemetry buoy from COBS site B. After arriving to the Welsh Channel we carried a side scan sonar survey most of the Channel until we deployed mini-STABLE and took grab samples and started 25 hrs station at 15:00. Finished CTDs at 15:30 14/03/2007 and set sail to Vittoria Docks loading STABLE III and Triaxis wave buoy. 15/03/2007 set sail to Hilbre Channel 05:30 arriving at 08:30, deploy wave buoy and carry out a side scan survey. Stable deployed at 10:10. 25 hrs CTD station started at 11:00. CTDs finished 16/03/2007 12:00 and set sail to Menai Bridge Docking at 16:30
