PurposeResearch
ObjectivesObjectives

1. To redeploy the Stonehaven mooring.
2. To conduct routine hydrographic sampling at stations along the standard JONSIS, Fair Isle-Munken and Nolso - Flugga survey lines.
3. To conduct plankton and hydrographic sampling with ARIES in the Faroe Shetland Channel

Procedure

Loading of gear and mooring equipment will take place at the end of the previous survey. Loading of all other scientific equipment will take place on 5 December with all equipment being set up and tested. Scotia will then sail on 7 December and, after all safety drills, head for position 56° 57.11'N, 002° 08.42'W to lay the hydrographic mooring. The vessel will then conduct a trial deployment of the sampling equipment at a suitable location coordinated with the master before commencing operations. The vessel will then proceed to the eastern end of the JONSIS line and complete hydrographic stations in a westerly direction. The vessel will then proceed to the Faroe-Shetland Channel and commence hydrographic and plankton sampling at selected stations along the Fair Isle-Munken survey line. On completion of the Fair Isle-Munken line, the vessel will proceed to conduct hydrographic and towed ARIES sampling at selected stations on the Nolso Flugga survey line.

It is expected that deployments of hydrographic equipment will be carried out with the CTD crane whilst the vessel is on station. ARIES deployments from the trawl deck will use the plankton crane. Three container laboratories will be required (one wet chemical analysis laboratory, two dry containers for electronics work and communications with sampling equipment). Plankton sample sorting and processing will be carried out in part of the fish laboratory. Hydrophones for receiving data from the plankton samplers will be installed on the drop keel before the start of the survey. All plankton samples will be preserved in formaldehyde solution. It is expected that a proportion of the samples will be sorted fresh, with specimens of Calanus finmarchicus being preserved in liquid nitrogen. All CTD, Optical Plankton Counter and ARIES data will be worked up at sea. Hydroacoustic data will be recorded for later analysis, though some preliminary analysis will be undertaken at sea.

Normal contacts will be maintained with the Laboratory.
