Objectives1. To recover 7 current meter moorings which were deployed west of the Hebrides and west of Orkney in June 1989.
2. To work hydrographic stations along the Fair Isle - Munken, Faroe and the Nolso, Faroe - Flugga, Shetland sections.
3. To carry out hydrographic surveys in the areas west of the Hebrides, west of Orkney and Shetland and in the northern North Sea.
4. To collect water samples for radio caesium analysis.
5. If equipment resources permit, to deploy the self-contained ADCP on a temporary current meter mooring close to one of the existing moorings as an intercomparison exercie. If deployed, this mooring will be recovered before the end of the cruise.
