PurposeResearch
ObjectivesThe objectives of this cruise were:
(1) To make CTD transects across the shelf between the Mull of Galloway and the Butt of Lewis, with radiocaesium water sampling. Accomplished.
(2) To check out North Channel current meter moorings and take any necessary action. Moorings in good condition so no action taken.
(3) To deploy an electromagnetic current meter at site S off SE Isaly for the duration of the cruise. Deployment done but problems with EMCM mooring configuration.
(4) To service mooring Y (Tiree Passage) and recover a UCNW shelf mooring. Accomplished.
(5) To work the Rockall via Anton Dohrn Seamount (Ellett Line) CTD section. Accomplished.
(6) To work a grid of CTD stations in the Firth of Clyde and Kilbrannan Sound. Accomplished.
