Ship name (ship code)RRS Discovery (74E3)
Cruise identifierD278
Cruise period2004-03-19 — 2004-03-30
StatusCompleted
Port of departureFreeport, Bahamas
Port of returnFreeport, Bahamas
ObjectivesPrincipally a mooring deployment cruise in the western North Atlantic Ocean at 26.5degN - six moorings deployed. This was followed by a hydrographic survey at the Abaco Western Boundary Array during which sixteen CTD casts were measured. Ship returned to Freeport, Grand Bahama, where the cruise ended.
