AMT11

The AMT11 cruse sailed onboard the RRS James Clark Ross from Grimsby, UK on 12 September 2000 and ended in Montevideo, Uruguay on 11 October 2000. The prinicipal scientist for the cruise was Malcolm Woodward from the Plymouth Marine Laboratory.

This cruise was different to previous AMT cruises in that it was coupled to a number of projects under the AMT banner. As well as core scientists from AMT there were two researchers from the Southampton Oceanography Centre carrying out meterological investigations as part of the Autoflux project, and the newly fitted Swath Bathymetry system was also being trialled and a survey was carried out in the Romanche Fracture Zone, part of the mid-Atlantic ridge system.
