ObjectivesObjective:
To complete routine sampling and vibrocore work in the Cormorant sheets (61° to 61° N, 0° to 2° E), and contribute significantly towards completing routine sampling on the Shetland sheets (60° to 61° N, 2° W to 0deg).

Comorant NW and NE (completed) and Shetland NE, SE and SW 100,000 sheets were worked. The routine sampling and vibrocore work was undertaken with gravity and sediment corers, Shipek grabs and vibrocores. 17 deep water virbocorer sites and 142 routine sites with grab, rock corer or sediment corer were completed. The deepest water vibrocorer sites attempted were achieved without incident.
