Cruise summary report

Cruise Info. 
Ship name (ship code)RV Prince Madog (74P2)
Cruise identifierPD29/10
Cruise period2010-08-10 — 2010-08-12
StatusCompleted
Port of departureBirkenhead, United Kingdom
Port of returnBirkenhead, United Kingdom
PurposeResearch
ObjectivesA. To service a sea bed ADCP frame and SmartBuoy mooring at 53 32N 3 22W.
B. To service a sea bed ADCP frame and SmartBuoy mooring at 53 32.3N 3 38.4W.
C. To obtain CTD profiles, water samples and grab samples at the Coastal Observatory sites.

The cruise is the 71st in a series starting in August 2002 to maintain the moorings in objective (A+B) and to steam round a CTD grid in Liverpool Bay / the eastern Irish Sea, objective (C).

The SmartBuoy at Site B (objective B) was not recovered and a new buoy was not deployed due to poor weather conditions. Both seabed ADCP frames however were successfully serviced and the SmartBuoy at Site A (objective A) was turned around. All CTD stations, except 22 and 23 were visited and sampled.
