ObjectivesThe work is directed at a better understanding of the dynamics of the circulation processes fringing the north east coast of England, between the Firth of Forth and Flamborough Head, and in the vicinity of the Dogger Bank. It is intended to characterise the extent and nature of the density driven and seasonal jet like circulation which, from previous work in the Irish Sea and limited historical data, we believe acts as a direct and rapid pathway for transport of material from the coastal region to the central North Sea. Subsequently, the knowledge will be viewed with respect to the nutrient dynamics of the region and concerns that elevated levels of contaminants on the Dogger Bank have originated in the near coastal region. The main sampling aims of the cruise are:
1) To recover three mooring arrays deployed during Corystes 7/97.
2) Recover free floating satellite tracked buoys deployed during Corystes 7/97 to determine the Lagrangian circulation.
3. Undertake associated physical and chemical surveys of the region in support of 1) and 2).
