StatusCompleted
Port of departureAberdeen, United Kingdom
Port of returnAberdeen, United Kingdom
Objectives1. To conduct sea trials of the Scanfish system in Aberdeen Bay.
2. To deploy 11 drifting buoys in the Fair Isle Current, northern North Sea gyre system.
3. To perform intensive hydrographic surveys of the northern North Sea gyre system, using the CEFAS Scanfish system and the vessel mounted ADCP. Surface parameters will be continuously recorded using the thermosalinograph.
4. To perform directed but limited plankton hauls in order to locate Nephrops larvae, and provide material for photography.
5. To perform calibration CTD stations.
6. To survey the JONSIS standard section using the CTD and rosette water sampler.
7. To perform test trawls with the PT160 net in order to locate salmon post-smolts, if time permits.
8. To recover any drifters which may be leaving the area.
9. To collect the Aberdeen, Fair Isle and Pentland Firth caesium samples.
