PurposeResearch
ObjectivesJC073 set out to study the functional ecology of cold-water coral habitats at contrasting sites in the North Atlantic west of Scotland and Ireland. The overriding objectives of the cruise were to examine the potential impacts of ocean acidification and warming on the reef framework-forming coral Lophelia pertusa since this species engineers complex habitats sustaining many other species. Specific objectives:

- Complete ROV surveys, sampling and in situ experimentation to support a variety of cruise objectives
- Conduct ship board experiments examining growth and metabolic responses of L. pertusa gathered by ROV
- Examine the microbial ecology of L. pertusa using samples collected with a purpose-built Cook sampler unit
- Examine trophic and reproductive ecology of L. pertusa
- Investigate use of dimethylsulphide (DMS) and dimethylsulphoniopropionate (DMSP) by cold-water corals
- Examine the ecophysiology and biogeochemistry of deep-sea sponges
- Conduct hydrographic surveys to examine the water column properties (CTD + O2) and carbonate chemistry above each site
- Examine the biogeochemical properties of the near-bed particle field using SAPS collection
- Complete surveys of the sediment-water interface along transects crossing different habitats associated with cold-water coral sites (SPI camera)
- Measure in situ O2 consumption of reef fauna using eddy correlation lander (ROV deployed)
- Measure in situ uptake of stable isotope labelled compounds into reef fauna (spreader chambers & clod cards)
- Gather material to examine the growth history of reef mounds and recover fossil coral carbonate using gravity coring
- Examine the effect of coral habitat on local biodiversity patterns (box coring)
- Resample historic benthic biodiversity station on Hebrides Terrace Slope (box coring)
- Complete novel habitat mapping using both ship and ROV-based multibeam echosounder surveys
- Examine spatial distribution and habitat use by deep-sea fish

In addition to the purely scientific objectives JC073 incorporated an outreach component including a 4-hour visit at sea by school children and teachers from Sgoil Lionacleit secondary school on Benbecula and a BBC One film crew.
