StatusCompleted
Port of departureLowestoft, United Kingdom
Port of returnLowestoft, United Kingdom
Objectives1. To complete off shore nutrient survey for MPMMG National Monitoring Programme (AE0503).
2. To deploy a mooring to test the NAS Mark 2 nutrient sampler and Valeport current meter. This will be launched in the Wash at the beginning of the cruise and recovered at the end of the cruise (AE0503).
3. To collect sediment samples near gas rigs in the southern North Sea for analysis for contamination with pseudo-oil based drilling muds. (AE0801).
4. To deploy the Tetrapod, the Quadrapod, 4 minipods, and the NERC STABLE benthic landers off the Holderness coast in phase 2 of the Holderness experiment. (AE0298(T)).
5. To survey Race Bank and area 107 using sidescan sonar and coring to determine whether dredger plumes are impinging on Race Bank. (AE0298(T))
6. To collaborate with the BBC and Open University Production Centre in the filming of the deployment of the benthic landers in the Holderness experiment. (AE0298(T)).
All the aims were successfully accomplished.
