Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RV Prince Madog (74P2) cruise PD38/09
Short name PD38/09
Objectives and Narrative Objectives

1. At site A 53 32'N, 3 21.8'W (CTD station 1 and 9)

To recover:

a) A sea bed frame containing a 600kHz ADCP (waves ADCP) to measure the mean current profile, pressures and directional waves; Sea-Bird SBE 16plus with pumped conductivity sensor, digiquartz pressure sensor and a SeaPoint turbidity sensor with wiper; Sea-Bird SBE 16plus with an Aanderra oxygen optode.
b) CEFAS SmartBuoy in a single point mooring. Attached to the mooring wire are Sea-Bird MicroCat temperature, conductivity loggers at 5m and 10m below the surface and miniloggers at 7.5 and 15 m below the surface.

To deploy:

c) A sea bed frame containing a 600kHz ADCP (waves ADCP) to measure the mean current profile, pressures and directional waves; Sea-Bird SBE 16plus with pumped conductivity sensor, digiquartz pressure sensor and SeaPoint turbidity sensor with wiper; Sea-Bird 16plus with an Aanderra oxygen optode, and FSI CTD.
d) CEFAS SmartBuoy in a single point mooring. Attached to the mooring wire are Sea-Bird MicroCat temperature, conductivity loggers at 5 and 10m below the surface and miniloggers at 7.5 and 15 m below the surface.

e) Collect 10 vertical zooplankton net hauls (CEFAS)
f) Carry out Benthic survey (5 grabs)

2. At site B 53 27'N, 3 38.6'W (CTD station 21)

To recover:

a) A CEFAS SmartBuoy in a single point mooring. Attached to the mooring wire are Sea-Bird MicroCat temperature, conductivity loggers at 5m and 10m below the surface and miniloggers at 7.5 and 15 m below the surface. AIS (Automatic Identification System), a collision avoidance system, attached to SmartBuoy.
b) A sea bed frame for a 600 kHz ADCP (waves ADCP) to measure the mean current profile, pressures and directional waves. A Sea-Bird SBE 16plus with pumped conductivity sensor, digiquartz pressure sensor and a SeaPoint turbidity sensor fitted with a wiper.

To deploy

c) A CEFAS SmartBuoy in a single point mooring.
