3. To work CTD, Freons (113, 11 and 12) and CCI4 (if available) at a range of locations from the Greenland Sea to the Labrador coast.
4. To conduct near-bottom hydrography of a few days duration at the foot of the Continental Slope of Porcupine Bank.
5. To test-run the PML pCO2 apparatus continuously around the entire cruise track,
