ObjectivesObjectives

1. Perform hydrographic surveys along the JONSIS long term monitoring section in the northern North Sea.
2. Perform hydrographic surveys along the long term monitoring Faroe-Shetland Channel sections.
3. Take water samples for long term storage at Fair Isle - Munken section stations FIM-01 and FIM-06.
4. Take water samples at selected stations on the Fair Isle - Munken section for St Andrews University for isotope and trace metal analysis.
5. Recover and download an ADCP mooring outside the eastern edge of the Foinaven development area and redeploy refurbished at a new site in the Faroe-Shetland Channel for the NACLIM project.
6. Recover, download, refurbish and redeploy one ADCP mooring in the Faroe-Shetland Channel for the NACLIM project.
7. Deploy and recover the UEA glider in the area of Cape Wrath - Faroe section.
8. Recover an ADCP mooring in the Bay of Skaill, Orkney.
9. Deploy 12 drifters on the west side of the Fair Isle Channel for the high frequency radar Brahan project (surface current measurement trials).
10. Recover, download, refurbish and redeploy four moorings in the Fair Isle Channel for the Brahan project.
11. Deploy the UEA glider in the Fair Isle/JONSIS section area.

Procedure

On sailing from Aberdeen (2 October) Scotia will make passage to the start of the JONSIS long term monitoring (LTM) section to commence sampling with the CTD and carousel water sampler. On route, test deployments of the CTD and carousel will take place. During sampling along the JONSIS section interrogation of the moorings will take place. Following completion of the JONSIS section six drifters, three drifters at each site listed below, will be deployed for the Brahan project prior to Scotia proceeding to the Faroe-Shetland Channel. Depending on prevailing weather conditions and timing of arrival, the initial work plan will be to recover and redeploy the two ADCP moorings in the Faroe - Shetland Channel and deploy the UEA glider. The glider operations will be led by UEA personnel and control of the glider will be carried out by shore based personnel at UEA. Contact between UEA ship and shore personnel during glider operations will be made by mobile iridium satellite phone. During the mooring and glider operations, the opportunity will be taken to check that three other ADCP moorings deployed in the Faroe - Shetland Channel during cruise 0513S are still in place. Following this, CTD and carousel water sampling will commence along the Cape-Wrath, Fair Isle-Munken and Nolso-Flugga LTM sections. When these lines are completed, the glider will be recovered prior to making passage to make a second deployment of drifters prior to the recovery of the ADCP mooring deployed in the Bay of Skaill. Following this work, the four moorings deployed during cruise 0513S in the Fair Isle area for the Brahan project will be recovered, data downloaded from instrumentation, moorings refurbished and then redeployed. The AWAC recovered from one of these moorings will be replaced by the ADCP recovered at the Bay of Skaill. At some point prior to or during mooring operations, the UEA glider will be deployed in the Fair Isle/JONSIS section area. It is intended to leave the glider deployed, to be picked up later in the year by another vessel. During the survey, contact will be maintained with personnel onshore to observe the progress being made by the deployed drifters. It is not planned to pick up any of the drifters prior to returning to Aberdeen unless circumstances dictate.
