PurposeResearch
ObjectivesObjectives

1. Test the SBE911 and CTD carousel (main CTD crane) and the SBE25 and Aquatracka (using plankton crane) in the Buchan Deep.
2. Perform routine hydrographic sampling at stations along the long term monitoring JONSIS section in the northern North Sea.
3. Perform routine hydrographic sampling at stations along the long term monitoring Faroe-Shetland Channel section: Nolso-Flugga.
4. Perform routine hydrographic sampling at stations along the long term monitoring Faroe-Shetland Channel section Fair Isle-Munken.
5. Take salinity, nutrient, chlorophyll, dissolved oxygen samples along all standard lines.
6. Run the thermosalinograph throughout the survey.
7. Run the VMADCP on all the standard sections.

If time allows:

8. Opportunistically communicate with lost ADCP mooring on NOL section and Foinaven mooring and potentially recover.
9. Deploy one new ADCP (NWEX) on a single string mooring on the NOL section.
10. If weather/time permits repeat the JONSIS line at the end of the survey and extend to 001° 30' east.
11. Perform hydrographic sampling along the Shelf 1 section (NW of Orkney).
12. Perform hydrographic sampling along the Shelf 2 section (NW of Orkney).
13. Perform hydrographic sampling along the Shelf 3 section (NW of Orkney).
14. Perform hydrographic sampling along the East Coast section.
15. Perform hydrographic sampling along the Fedje/Shetland section between Shetland and Norway.
16. Perform hydrographic sampling along the Stonehaven AlterEco section in the northern North Sea.
17. If conditions in the Faroe-Shetland Channel don't allow further work in the Faroe-Shetland Channel, conduct VMADCP/CTD work in the Moray Firth.
18. If weather/time permits, perform a CTD/VMADCP survey on part of the Jonsis line (around 59° 17' N, 001° 15' W).
19. If sheltering in a suitable location around Shetland or Orkney due to bad weather conduct VMADP/CTD surveys.
