PurposeResearch
Objectives1. To sample surface and subsurface radiocaesium and obtain CTD profiles at ten standard positions between the Sound of Mull and the shelf-edge, and to sample caesium at the surface of the North Channel.
2. To service the SMBA current emter mooring in the Tiree Passage.
3. To work the Anton Dohrn Seamount (Ellett Line) CTD section.
4. To obtain Craib corer or Shipek grab samples at a slecetion of sites upon the shelf and in deep water.
