ObjectivesThe objectives of this cruise were:
(1) To recover SMBA mooring in the Firth of Lorne. Accomplished.
(2) To obtain CTD profiles in the Firth of Lorne, Firth of Clyde, North Channel and across the west Scottish continental shelf augmented by radiocaesium samples. Accomplished.
(3) To obtain measurements of nutrient levels, chlorophyll and light attenuation in order to assess the conditions for primary production and the standing stock of phytoplankton. Accomplished.
(4) To obtain estimates of primary production and community respiration using 14C and O2 techniques in the study area and determine plankton community structure by size-fractionated chlorophyll, production and respiration experiments. Accomplished.
(5) To obtain samples of zooplankton for analysis of near-surface community composition and estimate zooplankton grazing pressure by gut pigment analysis. Accomplished.
