RRS Discovery Cruise 309-310, 18 Aug-05 Sep 2006. Cape Farewell and Eirik Ridge (CFER-2)
This report describes scientific activities during RRS Discovery cruise 309-310 in the vicinity of Cape Farewell, southern Greenland, during late summer 2006. A Deep Western Boundary Current array of seven moorings was recovered and a replacement array of five moorings was deployed. For IFREMER, one mooring and one glider were recovered; one IfM-GEOMAR and three NIOZ moorings were recovered, serviced and redeployed. Hydrographic work comprised 25 CTD/LADCP stations, and three tows of the Moving Vessel Profiler (MVP); water samples were captured on each station for the measurement of salinity. Continuous underway measurements comprised: navigation; currents, using ship-mounted ADCPs (75 and 150 kHz); meteorology; sea surface temperature and salinity; and bathymetry. D309-310 (CFER-2) 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 309-310 in the vicinity of Cape Farewell, southern Greenland, during late summer 2006. A Deep Western Boundary Current array of seven moorings was recovered and a replacement array of five moorings was deployed. For IFREMER, one mooring and one glider were recovered; one IfM-GEOMAR and three NIOZ moorings were recovered, serviced and redeployed. Hydrographic work comprised 25 CTD/LADCP stations, and three tows of the Moving Vessel Profiler (MVP); water samples were captured on each station for the measurement of salinity. Continuous underway measurements comprised: navigation; currents, using ship-mounted ADCPs (75 and 150 kHz); meteorology; sea surface temperature and salinity; and bathymetry. D309-310 (CFER-2) 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.
