Objectives1. 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 waters.
2. To measure factors affecting benthic nutrient recycling in subtidal sediments along a transect across the North Sea.
3. To test new instrumentation designed to determine in-situ the geotechnical properties of sediment.
4. To take nutrient samples over a grid in the Southern North Sea to improve knowledge of the seasonal signal (particularly phosphate) and subsequently compare with historic data.
5. To collect samples for a later chlorophyll intercomparison exercise. Five JoNuS co-workers will be issued with triplicate samples from five stations, of diverse chlorophyll levels.
