BODC Cruise Metadata Report for RRS Discovery (74E3) cruise D345

Introduction

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

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RRS Discovery (74E3) cruise D345
Short name D345
Objectives and Narrative The goals of cruise D345 were to:
1. Service the U.S. moorings within the western boundary array of the RAPID/MOCHA transbasin observing system. This includes three taut wire subsurface current meter/CTD moorings, and two bottom-lander moorings containing high-precision bottom pressure gauges.
2. Conduct hydrographic (CTDO2) and direct current profiling (lowered-ADCP ie LADCP) stations along the 26.5 N mooring section off Abaco, Bahamas; and across the Northwest Providence Channel, including continuous shipboard ADCP observations.
3) Service three bottom pressure/inverted echo sounder (PIES) moorings and retrieve data from two additional PIES moorings via acoustic telemetry.
