PurposeResearch
Objectives1. To perform hydrographic surveys along the JONSIS standard section in the northern North Sea.
2. To perform hydrographic surveys along the standard Faroe Shetland Channel sections.
3. To service two ADCP moorings in the Faroe Shetland Channel.
4. To recover two current meter moorings east of the Shetland Islands.
5. To recover a current meter mooring west of the Shetland Islands.
6. To carry out coastal hydrographic surveys.
7. To investigate post-smolt migration pathways along the shelf edge.
8. To perform ad-hoc CTD surveys in order to describe the environment within which post smolts are found.
9. To undertake a pilot study for the use of synthetic adsorbents in order to assess the concentration of free marine biotoxins and other compounds in the environment.
10. To collect 20 carboys of low nutrient seawater for Quasimeme.
11. To perform ad-hoc towed array acoustic recordings for cetaceans and deployment of sonobuoys.

Throughout the cruise, sea surface temperature, salinity and fluorescence recordings were made using a Sea-Bird SBE21 Thermosalinograph and Sea Point Fluorometer. Surface samples were taken throughout the cruise to calibrate these data
