Measurements 
Physical oceanography 
CTD stationsQuantity: activity duration in days = 7
Description: Sampling was carried out along 10 stations along the northwest shelf of the Hebrides. Problems were experienced with the equipment due to bad weather.
Subsurface temperature and salinity measurementsDescription: Temperature sensors failed due to leaking casings, so recordings were not noted. No. of samples not specified.
