PurposeResearch
ObjectivesObjectives

1. Test the CTD in the Buchan Deep off Peterhead.
2. Perform hydrographic sampling along the JONSIS long term monitoring section in the northern North Sea.
3. Perform hydrographic sampling along the long term monitoring Faroe-Shetland Channel sections, Fair Isle - Munken and Nolso - Flugga.
4. Take water samples for long-term storage at Fair Isle - Munken section stations FIM-01 and FIM-06.
5. Train one chemist in chemistry analysis at sea and one visitor (UHI) on oceanographic work.
6. Re-programme or recover an oceanographic mooring in Orkney waters (Westray Firth).
7. Perform a number of additional hydrographic sections if time allows.
8. The vessel-mounted ADCP will be run during work on the hydrographic monitoring lines.

Procedure

On sailing from Aberdeen Scotia will make passage towards the JONSIS monitoring line off Orkney (easternmost station) to commence sampling with the CTD and carousel water sampler). On route, test deployments of the CTD and carousel will take place around the Buchan Deep, using the newly adopted deployment procedures (10 m soak). On completion of the JONSIS section, passage will be made to the start of the Fair Isle - Munken (FIM) section for standard monitoring (water samples and CTD profiles). On completion of the FIM section, Scotia will make way to one end of the Nolso-Flugga (NOL) section for standard hydrographic monitoring. At the end of the hydrographic monitoring, Scotia will head towards Westray Firth to re-programme a mooring (in-water) or recover it if re-programming is not successful.
