RV Corystes COR12/94
Cruise summary report
|Ship name (ship code)||RV Corystes (74RY)|
|Cruise period||1994-10-13 — 1994-10-20|
|Port of departure||Lowestoft, United Kingdom|
|Port of return||Lowestoft, United Kingdom|
|Objectives||1. To deploy the Tetrapod and Quadrapod off the Holderness coast (AE0207A0).
2. To conduct test deployments of the Minipods (AE0207A0).
3. To deploy a line of 5 Minipods perpendicular to the Holderness Coast (AE0207A0). The fifth Minipod was not deployed because the proposed position was too shallow for RV Corystes.
4. To conduct a survey of the Holderness and the Humber area with the Scanfish, ADCP and Roxann (AE0207A0). Not conducted due to time constraints and poor weather, however a Sidescan survey of the area showed the area to be more rocky than expected.
5. To deploy the NERC STABLE (near bed velocity package) on the Holderness Coast. The area proposed for deployment proved to be too rocky and so STABLE was deployed on a site further offshore.
6a. Evaluate Nautronics Acoustic Tracking System (ATS) on Sidescan and Minipod deployments.
6b. Test prototype Gear marking tag.
6c. Trial the Satcom-C satellite communications system and Argos Radio direction finding system.
