    Science objectives/activities planned:
Current meter mooring - to be left down for duration of cruise. We plan to have a transponder at the top of the mooring (50 m above bottom), and to have a pull-pin release at the bottom.
Plankton pump mooring - to be deployed daily at first; then every other day. We plan to have a relay transponder at the top of the mooring (200 m above bottom) and a pull-pin release at the bottom.
Elevator - some of the benthic collections may require an elevator with coffins attached. Donal Manahan will know the details.
