Cruise Info. 
Ship name (ship code)RV Corystes (74RY)
Cruise identifierCOR11/92
Cruise period1992-09-28 — 1992-10-12
StatusCompleted
Port of departureLowestoft, United Kingdom
Port of returnSouth Shields, United Kingdom
ObjectivesPart A
1. To identify and quantify the fate of river-borne nutrients entering the Wash and Humber estuary, examining nutrient distributions and critical processes from the river inputs through to the North Sea in subtidal sediments and overlying water.
2. To measure factors affecting benthic nutrient recycling in subtidal sediments along a transect across the North Sea.
Part B
1. To locate a muddy sand site in 25 m of water in Newburgh Bay, Aberdeen, Scotland, for a long deployment of the Tetrapod. This site is exposed to northerly gales with the potential for extreme long period wave activity important for the resuspending of Cohesive sediments. The effects of the storm on the Benthos will be part of a longer term study by SOAFD.
2. To survey the proposed site and identify the sediment characteristics.
3. To identify the hydrographic environment in the vicinity of the proposed deployment site.
4. To deploy the Tetrapod, Quadrapod and guard buoys in Newburgh Bay for a long deployment (to be serviced in December by RV Scotia and recovered in January).
