ObjectivesThe objectives of this cruise were:
(1) To deploy a shelf current meter mooring at JASIN Station E2, to the north of St Kilda (58° 01 min N, 8° 46 min W). Accomplished.
(2) To service the deep current mooring at 57° 14 min N, 10° 36 min W. Accomplished.
(3) To make triangular CTD/STD surveys around each JASIN mooring. Accomplished, but may be compromised due to instrument losses during the survey.
(4) Map surface temperature and bathymetric depth in the JASIN experimental area. Thermosalinograph temperatures and bathymetric depth logged throughout the cruise.
