Narrative

Scotia sailed from Aberdeen at 0930 (all times are GMT) on Friday 26 September for the start of the JONSIS standard section. On route test dips of the 911+ CTD were performed to test the CTD crane and CTD instrumentation and for crew familiarisation of the CTD crane operation, CTD measurements and water sampling commenced on the JONSIS section at 0121 on Saturday 27 September. The section was completed at 1159 on the same day (Stns.459-470).

Scotia then proceeded to the Fair Isle Channel to recover and re-deploy two current meter moorings. Fair Isle Channel South mooring (5928.33'N 00201.79'W) was recovered at 1404 and redeployed (59 28.29'N 002 01.83'W) at 1535 on Saturday 27 September. Fair Isle Channel North mooring was recovered at 1800 on Saturday 27 September. Failing light resulted in the redeployment (59 43.34'N 001 41.48'W) of this mooring to be delayed until the following morning at 0727.

Following this Scotia made passage to the start of the most southerly (60 0.00'N) of three CTD sections, East of Shetland. East Shetland section 1 commenced at 1002 on Sunday 28 September and was completed at 2110 on Sunday 28 September (Stns.471-481), followed by East Shetland section 2 commencing at 0029 and finishing at 1203 on Monday 29 September (Stns. 482 -492). Scotia then proceeded to the start of the section East Shetland 3 and work commenced at 1423. This section was c
