Cruise period1984-08-15 — 1984-08-29
Port of departureScrabster, United Kingdom

ObjectivesBGS charter - Routine sampling

The second leg had originally been planned as a routine sampling leg. Delays in the ship mobilisation however resulted in most of the leg being devoted to the completion of the mobilisation and operational trials. The planned operational area included continental shelf waters as well as the upper part of the continental slope with depths down to 1200m. The operational trials were therefore required to devise practical methods of working in deep water. These were achieved for vibrocoring in water depths down to 500m.
