DML Line P

Line P is a survey section between Skerryvore and Islay (off the west coast of Scotland). The line comprises seven fixed CTD stations, which were established as part of routine monitoring work on the Scottish continental shelf by Dunstaffnage Marine Laboratory (DML). The line was occupied between the mid 1980s and mid 1990s.
