Objectives1. To lay two lines of four conventional current meter moorings off the Yorkshire coast en route to Iceland and to service these eight rigs on homeward leg.
2. To lay four complex rigs (conventional and S4 current meters plus thermistor chains) and the WAVEC wave measurement buoy in the centre of the HF radar overlap region on the homeward leg.
3. To recover the array of eight current meter moorings off East Greenland, each with two current meters per mooring, and to relay the either moorings with three current meters per mooring, one SEACAT and two thermistor chains.
4. To work CTD and Freons section along the line of moorings off East Greenland and two parallel sections along "NORWESTLANT 3 and 4" if time and/or weather permits.
5. To work XBTs for MOD(N) at six hourly intervals throughout the cruise when depths greater than 200m
6. To collect bulk samples of deep water off Greenland for ICES nutrient intercalibration work.
