  • Water Sampling for Long-Term Monitoring – An Update 09/10/18

    Scotia left harbour at 09:00 on Friday 5 October. Our first objective was to deploy the Conductivity, Temperature and Depth (CTD) profiler at 18 stations along a line at 57° N going west from the Scottish East Coast to 2°E.  Along with salinity (conductivity) and temperature, we measured dissolved oxygen, turbidity and fluorescence. We also…
