ObjectivesAims

1. Site A, 53° 32 N, 3° 21.8 W (CTD station 1)

To recover:
a) A sea bed frame containing a 600 kHz RDI ADCP, SeaBird SBE 16plus, Digiquartz pressure sensor, a SeaPoint turbidity sensor with wiper and SeaBird SBE 16plus with an Aanderaa oxygen Optode.
b) Cefas SmartBuoy in a single point mooring.
c) Cefas WaveNet waverider.

To deploy:
d) A sea bed frame containing a 600 kHz RDI ADCP, SeaBird SBE 16plus, Digiquartz pressure sensor, a SeaPoint turbidity sensor with wiper and SeaBird SBE 16plus with an Aanderaa oxygen Optode.
e) Cefas SmartBuoy in a single point mooring. SeaBird MicroCAT temperature and conductivity loggers are attached to the mooring wire at 10 m and 15m below the surface together with a mini-logger at 7.5m. In addition, a frame containing a WET Labs ac-s unit, WET Labs fluorometer and SeaBird MicroCAT is attached at 5 m below the surface.
f) Cefas WaveNet waverider.

2. CTD and LISST survey
3. Zooplankton net hauls
