RRS John Murray JM8/69 Leg 2
Cruise summary report
|Ship name (ship code)||RRS John Murray (74MJ)|
|Cruise identifier||JM8/69 Leg 2|
|Cruise period||1969-10-11 — 1969-10-21|
|Port of departure||Barry, United Kingdom|
|Port of return||Barry, United Kingdom|
|Objectives||1) To measure the noise levels of towed hydrophone arrays under different conditions including ship speed.
2) To record the noise spectrum of the ship under different engine conditions,
3) To make extensive tests of recent design modifications to the air-gun and to test its reliabilty.
4) To obtain Grab samples from five areas of small sand waves to the south of the Isle of Wight.
