Objectives1. To perform hydrographic surveys along the standard Faroe-Shetland Channel sections using a CTD with rosette water sampler. A vessel mounted ADCP and thermosalinograph will also be run continuously.
2. To perform detailed experiments concerning the sampling, storage and analysis of nutrient samples.
3. To deploy a NORDIC WOCE ADCP mooring (NWSE) at the shelf edge west of Shetland.
4. To recover, service and redeploy a NORDIC WOCE ADCP mooring (NWSD) in the centre of the Faroe-Shetland Channel.
5. To perform experimental deep water trawls northwest of Shetland along the Munken-Fair Isle line.
6. To recover and store samples of deep water coral.
7. To deploy and recover temporary fish trap moorings for a duration of approximately 24 hours at various sites along the Munken - Fair Isle line.
8. To perform repeat ADCP sections in conjunction with satellite altimeter over-flights (if external funding for hire of DGPS approved).
9. To perform experimental trawls in order to assess surface fish population in the autumn at a location known to have high concentrations of salmon post-smolts during the summer.
10. To perform hydrographic surveys along the JONSIS standard section, if time permits.
11. To collect the Fair Isle caesium sample, and samples of sea water for laboratory use.
12. To conduct seabird observations (JNCC).
