ObjectivesFollowing the failure of CIROLANA 1/93 to complete the North Sea JONUS and Phosphate stations because of bad weather, the priorities of this cruise were revised as follows:
1. To examine the nutrient distribution from river inputs to the North Sea.
2. To take samples over a grid in a Southern North Sea to improve knowledge of the seasonal signal in nutrients particuarly phosphate.
3. To identify and quantify the fate of river borne nutrients entering the Wash and Humber estuary.
Due to the completion of aims 1 and 2, there was insufficient time to attempt aim 3.
