Abstract

The SNOMS project brings together the resources of the United Kingdom’s National Oceanographic Centre, Southampton (one of the world’s leading centres for marine research) and The Swire Group (a major multinational corporation) to make a significant contribution towards improving our understanding of the role of the oceans in controlling concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and hence the worlds climate. The Swire Group Charitable Trust funded the design, assembly and installation of a scientific data collection system on their ship the MV Pacific Celebes. The system is now providing data from areas where no or little data exists particularly in the Indian Ocean, Red Sea and Mediterranean. It links with and connects on-going observations in the Atlantic. Data from the system supports projects both at NOC and elsewhere including the IOCPP (International Ocean Carbon Coordination Project). In Singapore and Jakarta, in June 2007, NOC installed the first system on the Swire ship the MV Pacific Celebes. This report details the job required to be carried out by NOC personnel and the ship’s crew in order to main the system and to provide water samples to be analysed on shore. These water samples will allow the quality of the autonomous measurements to be assessed. This report should be used in conjunction with, NOC Internal Document No. 8 [Hydes, D J, (2007) Report on the SNOMS Swire NOCS Ocean Monitoring System: System Description and Inventory for the MV Pacific Celebes system fitted June 2007] which provides a detailed description of the equipment installed on the ship. Two videos of the cleaning and sampling procedures were made during the fitting out of the system [“070604 tank movie v2” and “070604 sampling movie v2”]. Copies of the videos have been supplied to both the Master and Chief Engineer of the MV Pacific Celebes along with this document on a CD. The report also contains the “risk assessments” for the work needed on the MV Pacific Celebes as part of SNOMS activities and the necessary chemical safety data.
