PurposeResearch
Objectives1. Mooring deployment and recovery
Site A 53 32N, 3 21.8W (CTD station 1). Recover and deploy sea bed frame and CEFAS SmartBuoy.
Site B, 53 32.3N, 3 38.4W (CTD station 20). Recover and deploy sea bed frame and CEFAS SmartBuoy.
2. CTD and LISST survey survey covering 34 sites.
3. Collect grab samples of the seabed sediment at each station.
4. Collect 10 vertical zooplankton net hauls at Site A to determine species diversity and abundance.
