ObjectivesObjectives

1. Recover service and redeploy the instrument 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. Take salinities for St. Andrews University at the Fair Isle - Munken station FIM-05 and Nolso - Flugga station NOL-04
6. Recover service and redeploy three ADCP moorings and recover one ADCP mooring in the Faroe-Shetland Channel.
7. Perform 13 hour CTD surveys and VMADCP profiling at ADCP positions and CTD surveys across the Fair Isle Channel, across the Shelf Edge and East of Shetland as time allows.

Procedure

On sailing from Aberdeen (29 September) Scotia will sail to the Stonehaven LTM site to recover, service, download instrumentation and redeploy the oceanographic instrumented mooring (56° 56.95'N 002° 08.10'W). Once this mooring work has been completed, a suitable position will be selected to carry out trial CTD deployments before proceeding to the JONSIS line. Sampling will be undertaken along this section using the CTD and carousel water sampler. Following this work Scotia will make way to the Faroe-Shetland Channel to commence mooring operations. Three ADCP moorings, NWSE (60° 16.48'N 004° 19.84'W), NWSD (60° 26.97'N 004° 22.41'W) and NWSG (60° 30.51'N 004° 34.03'W) will be recovered, data downloaded from the recovered instrument, mooring refurbished and the mooring redeployed. The fourth ADCP mooring, NWSF (60° 12.01'N 004° 00.45'W) will be recovered, data downloaded and brought back to the laboratory for a manufacturer's service and calibration. On completion of this mooring work, passage will be made to commence sampling the Fair Isle - Munken and Nolso - Flugga long term monitoring sections using the CTD and carousel water sampler. Salinity samples required for St. Andrews and for long-term storage will be taken during the sampling of these sections. On completion the remaining time will be spent carrying out CTD and vessel mounted ADCP profiling at the ADCP mooring positions, CTD sections across the shelf edge, the Fair Isle section or East of Shetland before returning to Aberdeen.

The thermosalinograph will be run throughout the survey.
