Summer Isles geophysical survey, BGS Project 05/04 RV Calanus operations report

By C.P. Brettle and D.J. Smith

Abstract

This report describes the operation of BGS Project 05/04, a swath bathymetry and surface tow boomer survey in the Summer Isles Region, carried out from 4th to 24th July 2005.\ud The vessel used was the RV Calanus chartered from the Scottish Association Of Marine Science (SAMS), based in Oban. Because of the inshore nature of the work operations were carried out on a 12 hour daily basis but with personnel living on the vessel. Calanus proved well suited to the work and a very detailed swath coverage of the Summer Islands region together with Loch Broom and Little Loch Broom was achieved in the first two weeks of the survey.\ud The last four days of operations were devoted to a surface tow boomer survey.\ud The survey was a part of the BGS Offshore Mapping and Modelling Project E2027S73, North Atlantic Correlation
