PurposeResearch
ObjectivesThe objectives of this cruise were:
(1) To make triangular STD surveys around each JASIN mooring. Accomplished.
(2) Service the mooring at 57N, 9W. Accomplished.
(3) Work the Rockall via Anton Dohrn Seamount (Ellett Line) CTD section. Accomplished.
(4) Make water drop flux measurements using the apparatus from the Catholic University of America. Accomplished, but opportunities for measurements were limited due to exceptionally calm weather.
(5) Oblique surface water photography to measure foam. Accomplished.
(6) Underway surface chlorophyll measurements. Accomplished.
(7) Collect large-volume surface water samples on the Scottish shelf for radiocaesium analysis. Accomplished with STD profiles at all but one stations.
