RRS Discovery Cruise 298, 23 Aug-25 Sep 2005. Cape Farewell and Eirik Ridge (CFER-1)
This report describes scientific activities during RRS Discovery cruise 298 in the vicinity of Cape Farewell, southern Greenland, during early autumn 2005. A Deep Western Boundary Current array of seven moorings was deployed, and two IFREMER moorings were recovered, serviced and redeployed; also, a WHOI mooring was recovered. Hydrographic work comprised an area survey of 63 CTD/LADCP stations; up to 24 water samples were captured on each station for the measurement of salinity, dissolved oxygen, nutrients, CFCs (CFC-11, CFC-12, CFC-113 and CCl4), and oxygen isotope fraction (?18O). Continuous underway measurements comprised: navigation; currents, using ship-mounted ADCPs (75 and 150 kHz); meteorology; sea surface temperature and salinity; 3.5 kHz sub-bottom sediment profiling; and bathymetry. Three sediment cores were obtained. Six floats / drifters were launched. D298 (CFER-1) is a part of the project “Cape Farewell and Eirik Ridge: Interannual to Millennial Thermohaline Circulation Variability”, funded by the UK Natural Environment Research Council as part of its “Rapid Climate Change” Directed Research Programme.

Abstract

This report describes scientific activities during RRS Discovery cruise 298 in the vicinity of Cape Farewell, southern Greenland, during early autumn 2005. A Deep Western Boundary Current array of seven moorings was deployed, and two IFREMER moorings were recovered, serviced and redeployed; also, a WHOI mooring was recovered. Hydrographic work comprised an area survey of 63 CTD/LADCP stations; up to 24 water samples were captured on each station for the measurement of salinity, dissolved oxygen, nutrients, CFCs (CFC-11, CFC-12, CFC-113 and CCl4), and oxygen isotope fraction (?18O). Continuous underway measurements comprised: navigation; currents, using ship-mounted ADCPs (75 and 150 kHz); meteorology; sea surface temperature and salinity; 3.5 kHz sub-bottom sediment profiling; and bathymetry. Three sediment cores were obtained. Six floats / drifters were launched. D298 (CFER-1) is a part of the project “Cape Farewell and Eirik Ridge: Interannual to Millennial Thermohaline Circulation Variability”, funded by the UK Natural Environment Research Council as part of its “Rapid Climate Change” Directed Research Programme.
