ObjectivesObjectives
1. At 53 32 N 3 21.8 W, half a mile west of the Mersey Bar Light Vessel (site A)
To recover: (a) A sea bed frame for a 600 kHz ADCP (waves ADCP) to measure the mean current profile, pressures and directional waves. A Sea-Bird SBE 16plus with pumped conductivity sensor, digiquartz pressure sensor and a SeaPoint turbidity sensor was fitted to the frame. The frame was fitted with a SonTek ADV; (b) A CEFAS SmartBuoy (with cellulose bags) in a single point mooring. Attached to the mooring wire are SeaBird MicroCat temperature, conductivity loggers at 5 and 10m below the surface and miniloggers at 7.5 and 15 m below the surface.
To deploy: (c) A sea bed frame for a 600 kHz ADCP (waves ADCP) to measure the mean current profile, pressures and directional waves. A Sea-Bird SBE 16plus with pumped conductivity sensor, digiquartz pressure sensor, a SeaPoint turbidity sensor, Aanderaa optode and a SonTek ADV were fitted to the frame; (d) A CEFAS SmartBuoy (with cellulose bags) in a single point mooring. Attached to the mooring wire are Sea-Bird MicroCat temperature, conductivity loggers at 5 and 10m below the surface and miniloggers at 7.5 and 15 m below the surface.
2. At 53 27 N 3 38.6 W (site 21, second site, B)
To recover: (a) A sea bed frame for a 600 kHz ADCP (waves ADCP) to measure the mean current profile, pressures and directional waves. A Sea-Bird SBE 16plus with pumped conductivity sensor, digiquartz pressure sensor and a SeaPoint turbidity sensor were fitted to the frame. A 1200 kHz telemetry ADCP was fitted to the frame; (b) A CEFAS SmartBuoy (with cellulose bags) in a single point mooring. Attached to the mooring wire are Sea-Bird MicroCat temperature, conductivity loggers at 5 and 10m below the surface and miniloggers at 7.5 and 15 m below the surface; (c) A telemetry toroid.
To deploy: (d) A sea bed frame for a 600 kHz ADCP (waves ADCP) to measure the mean current profile, pressures and directional waves. A Sea-Bird SBE 16plus with pumped conductivity sensor, digiquartz pressure sensor, a SeaPoint turbidity sensor were fitted to the frame. A 1200 kHz telemetry ADCP was fitted to the frame; (e) A CEFAS SmartBuoy (with cellulose bags) in a single point mooring. Attached to the mooring wire are Sea-Bird MicroCat temperature, conductivity loggers at 5 and 10m below the surface and miniloggers at 7.5 and 15 m below the surface; (f) A telemetry toroid.
3. To conduct a CTD / LISST survey of 34 sites every 5 miles covering the eastern Irish Sea between the North Wales coast and Blackpool and the Lancashire coast and the Great Orme, to determine the effects of the rivers Dee, Mersey and Ribble on Liverpool Bay. To obtain calibration samples for salinity, transmittance, suspended sediment and for chlorophyll at selected stations. To obtain near surface and bed water samples for nutrient and suspended sediment determination.
4. Collect 10 vertical net hauls at mooring site A.
5. Collect sediment samples at each of the CTD sites.
6. To recover an ADCP frame at 53 27 N 3 30.2 W (site 12)
7. To conduct a 25 hour CTD / LISST survey every 30 minutes and recover a STABLE lander at 53 22.4 N 3 14.1 W (Hilbre Channel, Dee Estuary)
8. To conduct a 25 hour CTD / LISST survey every 30 minutes and recover a Mini-STABLE lander at 53 22.2 N 3 19.6 W (Welsh Channel, Dee Estuary)
