This report describes scientific activities during RRS Discovery cruise 309-310 in the vicinity\ud of Cape Farewell, southern Greenland, during late summer 2006. A Deep Western Boundary\ud Current array of seven moorings was recovered and a replacement array of five moorings was\ud deployed. For IFREMER, one mooring and one glider were recovered; one IfM-GEOMAR\ud and three NIOZ moorings were recovered, serviced and redeployed. Hydrographic work\ud comprised 25 CTD/LADCP stations, and three tows of the Moving Vessel Profiler (MVP);\ud water samples were captured on each station for the measurement of salinity. Continuous\ud underway measurements comprised: navigation; currents, using ship-mounted ADCPs (75\ud and 150 kHz); meteorology; sea surface temperature and salinity; and bathymetry. D309-310\ud (CFER-2) is a part of the project “Cape Farewell and Eirik Ridge: Interannual to Millennial\ud Thermohaline Circulation Variability”, funded by the UK Natural Environment Research\ud Council as part of its “Rapid Climate Change” Directed Research Programme
