Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RRS James Clark Ross (74JC) cruise JR20070418 (JR167, JR168)
Short name JR20070418 (JR167, JR168)
Objectives and Narrative Cruise JR168 was undertaken as part of the Geological Sciences Division (BAS)
Long Term Monitoring and Survey (LTMS) programme of work in the Scotia Sea
area. The main aim of the survey was to map the underwater portion of the northern
sector of the South Sandwich arc using EM120 multi beam (swath) bathymetry, to
provide a base map for further geological and multidisciplinary research. As the
cruise was joined with a Biological Sciences LTMS cruise (JR167) in the South
Georgia area, an additional aim was to collect swath data opportunistically in the
South Georgia area as well. The northern sector of the South Sandwich arc was
chosen because of its proximity to South Georgia, minimising transit time.
Cruise JR167, a biology cruise, involved mooring work and western core box acoustics around South Georgia.
