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. Recover and download the data from the four ADCP moorings deployed on positions adjacent to the Fair Isle - Munken (FIM/NWS) section.
4. Deploy one ADCP mooring at a position on Fair Isle - Munken section.
5. Take surface water samples at FIM 6a location for bacterial analysis and experimentation (HWU).
6. Perform hydrographic sampling along the long term monitoring Faroe-Shetland Channel Nolso - Flugga (NOL/NWE) section.
7. Deploy two ADCP moorings at positions on Faroe-Shetland Channel Nolso - Flugga section.
8. Take water samples for long term storage on Fair Isle - Munken and Nolso - Flugga section stations.
9. Take water samples for bacteria analysis at selected stations on the monitoring lines.
10. Take sediment samples at or near two Nolso - Flugga section stations.
11. Deploy one ADCP mooring at a position on Faroe-Shetland Channel Faroe - Cape Wrath (FCW/NWZ) section.
12. Perform hydrographic sampling in the vicinity of the above ADCP mooring.
13. Perform hydrographic sampling along the long term monitoring Faroe-Shetland Channel Fair Isle - Munken (NWS) section.

Procedure

On sailing from Aberdeen MRV Scotia will carry out test deployments of the CTD and carousel around the Buchan Deep, using the standard deployment procedures (10 m soak); sampling procedures will also be rehearsed at the test station. The vessel will then make passage to the start of the JONSIS long term monitoring section to carry out sampling with the CTD and carousel water sampler. On completion of the JONSIS section, passage will be made to the start of the ADCP mooring sites on the Fair Isle - Munken (FIM) section, where the ADCP moorings will be recovered. The CTD will be deployed at a subset of the mooring locations, prior to mooring recovery. It is also planned to collect surface water at the FIM 6a station for bacterial work by HWU visitors. The ADCP instrumentation data will be downloaded then instruments and moorings refurbished on route to new deployment positions. The first mooring deployment will be on the FIM section. Scotia will then make her way to the eastern start of the Nolso - Flugga (NOL) section for long term monitoring samples and CTD profiles to be taken along the monitoring line. At two relevant locations along NOL, mooring deployments will be carried out. Day grab sampling will also be carried out at two stations on NOL (NOL-6 and NOL-7), if time allows. After the NOL section, Scotia will head to the last mooring location on the Faroe - Cape Wrath (NWZ) section for a mooring deployment and hydrographic sampling. On completion of that work and if time allows, Scotia will proceed to the FIM section to carry out standard CTD and water sampling along that line, prior to her return to Aberdeen.
