PurposeResearch
ObjectivesSite A, 53° 32′ N, 3° 21.8′ W

To recover:
a) A sea bed frame containing a 600 kHz RDI ADCP (acoustic Doppler current profiler, measuring mean current profile, pressures and directional waves), SeaBird SBE 16plus (with pumped conductivity sensor), Digiquartz pressure sensor, a SeaPoint turbidity sensor with wiper and SeaBirdSBE 16plus with an Aanderaa oxygen Optode.
b) Cefas SmartBuoy (including the new weather station system) in a single point mooring. Temperature mini-loggers are attached to the mooring wire at 7.5 m and 15 m below the surface and a SeaBird MicroCAT temperature and conductivity logger at 10 m below the surface. A frame containing a WET Labs ac-s unit (measuring spectra of absorption and attenuation), WET Labs fluorometer and
SeaBird MicroCAT is attached at 5 m below the surface.

To deploy:
c) A seabed frame containing a 600 kHz RDI ADCP (measuring mean current profile, pressures and directional waves), SeaBird SBE 16plus (with pumped conductivity sensor), Digiquartz pressure sensor, a SeaPoint turbidity sensor with wiper and SeaBird SBE 16plus with an Aanderaa oxygen Optode.
d) Cefas SmartBuoy in a single point mooring. Temperature mini-loggers are attached to the mooring wire at 7.5 m and 15 m below the surface and a SeaBird MicroCAT temperature and conductivity logger at 10 m below the surface. A frame containing a WET Labs ac-s unit, WET Labs fluorometer and SeaBird MicroCAT is attached at 5 m below the surface.

Site B, 53° 32.3′ N, 3° 38.4′ W (CTD station 20)

To recover:
a) A sea bed frame for a 600 kHz RDI ADCP measuring mean current profile, pressures and directional waves, a SeaBird SBE 16plus (with pumped conductivity sensor), Digiquartz pressure sensor and a SeaPoint turbidity sensor (fitted with a wiper).
b) A Cefas SmartBuoy in a single point mooring. Attached to the mooring wire are SeaBird MicroCAT temperature, conductivity loggers at 5 m
