ObjectivesThe survey aims to fulfill Ireland's requirements under the Joint Assessment and Monitoring Programme (JAMP) of the 1992 Oslo Paris Convention for the Protection of the North East Atlantic (OSPAR). This requires answering 3 key questions:
1. What is the spatial distribution of nutrients?
2. Are nutrient concentrations changing over time (trends)?
3. Are nutrient concentrations significantly elevated (>50%) above salinity related and/or regionally specific background levels?
