PurposeResearch
ObjectivesThe objectives of this cruise were:
(1) To make triangular STD surveys around each JASIN mooring. Accomplished with additional casts designed to study internal waves.
(2) To recover the shelf current meter mooring at JASIN Station E2, to the north of St Kilda (58° 01 min N, 8° 46 min W) and the deep mooring at 57.5N, 12.25W). Accomplished.
(3) Work an STD section from Rockall Bank to Barra, incorporating several Ellett Line stations across the Anton Dohrn Seamount/Rockall Trough, and the Sound of Mull. The section was worked piecemeal.
(4) Collect large-volume surface water samples on the Scottish shelf for radiocaesium analysis. Accomplished.
(5) To make droplet flux and aerosol measurements. Accomplished.
(6) To release surface drifters and make whitecap observations. Accomplished.
(7) Map surface temperature and bathymetric depth in the JASIN experimental area. Accomplished.
