Cruise Info. 
Ship name (ship code)RRS Discovery (74E3)
Cruise identifierD277
Cruise period2004-02-26 — 2004-03-16
StatusCompleted
Port of departureSanta Cruz de Tenerife, Spain
Port of returnFreeport, Bahamas
ObjectivesMain objective of this cruise was the deployment of 13 moorings across the eastern and mid North Atlantic Ocean (between 24° and 28° N approximately). Subsequent testing of new Discovery winch system on station in western North Atlantic Ocean, followed by an eight-cast CTD section of the Florida Current. The last two days of the cruise were largely devoted to carrying out ADCP surveys, initially across the Florida Current, and finally, the New Providence Channel. This latter survey transect was completed less than five miles from Freeport, Grand Bahama, where the cruise ended.

Measurements 
Physical oceanography 
Surface measurements underway (T,S)Quantity: activity duration in days = 19
Description: Non-toxic water supply. Discrete water samples taken to calibrate underway salinity using salinometer (TSG/standard seawater samples). Typically 1 sample taken every 10 hours (every 1-2 hours when sampling from Florida Straits).

Description: Sea surface hydrography underway measurements
Water bottle stationsQuantity: number of stations = 14
Description: Water bottle samples fired on CTD upcast for discrete salinity analysis
CTD stationsQuantity: number of stations = 14
