Cruise summary report

Cruise Info. 
Ship name (ship code)FS Meteor (06M3)
Cruise identifierM27_1
Cruise period1993-12-29 — 1994-01-17
StatusCompleted
Port of departureHamburg, Germany
Port of returnA Coruña, Spain
PurposeResearch
ObjectivesStudy of water column and benthic processes on a section across the Goban Spur in the Celtic Sea. Scientific work was severely limited by adverse weather conditions. Whilst sampling of the water column on the primary section was accomplished, only one sediment sample was obtained.
