Measurements 
Physical oceanography 
Surface measurements underway (T,S)Description: Water samples were taken at half hourly intervals from 1m below surface to determine salinity levels.
Transparency (eg transmissometer)Description: Surface measurements and sampling along an axial track from South Killinghome along the main navigation channel. Water samples were taken at half hourly intervals from 1m below surface.
Contamination 
Suspended matterDescription: Water samples were taken at half hourly intervals from 1m below surface to determine particle size distribution.
Suspended matterDescription: Surface measurements and sampling along an axial track from South Killinghome along the main navigation channel. Water samples were taken at half hourly intervals from 1m below surface.
Biology and fisheries
