1. to obtain synoptic fall observations of the hydrography and the distributions of nutrients, phytoplankton, zooplankton and bacteria along three sections on the Scotian Shelf and one in Cabot Strait, i.e. to carry out the fall Atlantic Zone Monitoring Programme (AZMP).
2. to retrieve moorings along a section (SS-B) across the slope waters of the central Scotian Shelf, to deploy moorings along the extension of the Halifax Section and to take hydrographic profiles and collect water samples at mooring stations. This part of the programme is in collaboration with members of the UK RAPID-WAVE (West Atlantic Variability Experiment) programme.
The third leg of the mission was to the eastern Scotian Shelf, the Gully and Cabot Strait. The deployment of drifters north of the Cabot Strait line was carried out in support of a project lead by Peter Smith and 'whale-listening' moorings in Shortland and Haldiman canyons were recovered in support of a project of a graduate student from Dalhouise University. In addition to the AZMP sampling along the Cabot Strait and Louisbourg Lines, 4 stations were sampled in the central Gully and Gully mouth.
