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 PD04/08
Short name PD04/08
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 Hilbre Swash.

In the following narrative all times are UMT The Prince Madog was loaded on the 11/02/2008, Mini-STABLE, was loaded. We sailed from Menai Bridge at 08:0 on the 12/02/2008. Go to site 12 adn deploy ADCP. Travel to Welsh Channel. After arriving to the Welsh Channel we carried a side scan sonar survey 12:02 most of the Channel until we deployed mini-STABLE at 13:00. Took grab samples and started 25 hrs CTD and INSSEV station at 13:30. Finished CTDs at 14:00 13/02/2008 and set sail to Vittoria Docks loading STABLE III and Triaxis wave buoy. 14/04/2008 set sail to Hilbre Channel 05:00 arriving at 07:30, carry out a side scan survey. Stable deployed at 9:15 and wave buoy at 10:00. 25 hrs CTD station started at 10:30. CTDs finished 15/02/2008 14:00 and set sail to Menai Bridge Docking at 17:00
