Port of returnLowestoft, United Kingdom
ObjectivesThe work is directed at a better understanding of the dynamics of the North Channel which control the flushing characteristics of the Irish Sea. Net outflow from the Irish Sea is northward but there are apparently long periods of inflow on the western side of the channel. It is not known to what extent outflowing water recirculates and extends southward along the Irish coast or what importance inflows of Atlantic water have on flushing characteristics of the region. Variability in the flow regime and factors governing it are poorly understood. In addition, work will be undertaken off the north east of England to examine elements of the circulation. The main sampling aims of the cruise are:
1. To deploy and recover mooring arrays in the North Channel/western Irish Sea and North Sea..
2. Deploy and retrieve free floating ARGOS buoys in the North Channel/western Irish Sea and North Sea to determine the Lagrangian circulation.
3. Undertake associated physical and biological surveys of the region in support of 1) and 2).
4.Perform trials of a self contained broad band ADCP.
5. Conduct a Tin Tow survey of the western Irish Sea.
6. Undertake a Scanfish and nutrient survey in Liverpool Bay (AE0529).
