The main objectives of the mission were:
- to obtain synoptic fall observations of the hydrography and the distributions of nutrients, phytoplankton, zooplankton and bacteria along three sections on the Scotian Shelf and one in Cabot Strait, i.e. to carry out the fall Atlantic Zone Monitoring Programme (AZMP).
- to retrieve and redeploy moorings along a section (SSB) across the slope waters of the central Scotian Shelf, in collaboration with members of the UK RAPID WAVE (West Atlantic Variability Experiment) programme. RAPID WAVE is funded by the UK Natural Environment Research Council.
During the final Leg of the mission, AZMP sampling was carried out along the Halifax, Louisbourg and Cabot Strait lines, with additional sampling in the region of the Gully. CANSARP mooring deployments were made during Leg 2 of the mission, and the CANSARP drifters were deployed.
