Cruise period1995-11-08 — 1995-11-20
StatusCompleted
Port of departureBirkenhead, United Kingdom
Port of returnLowestoft, United Kingdom
Objectives1. To deploy an array of six current meter moorings off the Cumbrian Coast for a four week deployment. The current meters will be serviced on CIROLANA 10/95 and recovered on CIROLANA 1/96. This works aims to help validate the Eastern Irish Sea Model (AE128D0).
2. To conduct short trial deployments of the Tetrapod and Quadrapod to test new sensors and new configurations of sensors (AE0135A0).
3. To deploy the Tetrapod, Quadrapod and four Minipods for a two month deployment being recovered on CIROLANA 1/96. One Minipod will be recovered in December on CIROLANA 10/95 so that water sampling syringes can be serviced (AE0135A0).
4. To conduct Sidescan and CTD surveys of the proposed trawling site (AE0135A0).
Additional Aim:
5. To deploy on a Minipod the prototype light sensor for the Micro Tag (MF0129E0).
