Cruise period2005-08-08 — 2005-08-12
StatusCompleted
Port of departureUnknown, United Kingdom
Port of returnUnknown, United Kingdom
PurposeFisheries
ObjectivesTwo current meter mooring deployments, two tide gauge deployments and three drogue release experiments consisting of four drogues each were undertaken in Loch Shieldaig and Loch Torridon to develop a baroclinic circulation model of the area and permit prediction of surface currents and advection of sea lice. A weather station was also installed to monitor local winds, and a CTD survey was undertaken to investigate internal wave activity.
