ObjectivesObjectives

1. Deploy a current meter mooring off Stonehaven near the inner Long Term Monitoring position.
2. Perform hydrographic surveys along the JONSIS long term monitoring section in the northern North Sea.
3. Perform hydrographic surveys along the long term monitoring Faroe-Shetland Channel sections.
4. Take samples for long term storage at Fair Isle - Munken stations FIM-01 and FIM-06.
5. Service four ADCP moorings in the Faroe-Shetland Channel.
6. Perform CTD surveys at ADCP positions, across the Fair Isle Channel and across the Shelf Edge as time allows.
7. Test and initiate the PCO2 system

Procedure

On sailing from Aberdeen (7 May) Scotia will sail to Stonehaven to deploy an oceanographic instrumented mooring (56° 57.18'N 002° 07.98'W). Once this mooring work has been completed, a suitable position will be selected to carry out trial CTD deployments before proceeding to Leith. On route to Leith, testing the PCO2 system will take place. Scotia will remain in Leith until dignitaries attending the World Fisheries Congress have visited the vessel.

Once the visit is complete, the vessels scientific containers will be loaded and scientific equipment set up. Marine Scotland staff not involved in the Stonehaven mooring work will join the vessel late Tuesday afternoon (8 May) and one member of staff will return to Aberdeen. Scotia will then set sail for the start of sampling the JONSIS long term monitoring section with the CTD and carousel water sampler. Following this work Scotia will make way to the Faroe-Shetland Channel to commence mooring operations. One ADCP mooring, NWSE (60° 16.52'N 004° 19.98'W) will be recovered, data downloaded from the recovered instrument, mooring refurbished and the mooring redeployed. Two ADCP moorings, NWZE and NWZF (59° 54.36'N 006° 10.02'W, 59° 42.30'N 006° 09.94'W) will be recovered, data downloaded from the recovered instruments and moorings refurbished. These moorings will be redeployed, at positions NWSD and NWSF (60° 27.00'N 004° 22.50'W, 60 12.00'N 004 10.00'W). On completion of this mooring work, passage will be made to commence sampling the Fair Isle- Munken, Cape Wrath-Munken and Nolso-Flugga long term monitoring sections using the CTD and carousel water sampler. On completion, the remaining time will be spent carrying out CTD sampling at the ADCP mooring positions, across the shelf edge or the Fair Isle section before returning to Aberdeen.

The thermosalinograph will be run throughout the survey.
