The cruise is due to depart from Southampton, UK on 19th May 2018 and return to Southampton, UK on 12th June 2018. It is part of a long-term monitoring programme that conducts time-series measurements at the Porcupine Abyssal Plain (PAP) Site and involves an annual cruise to the Site to turn around the moorings and conduct water-column and benthic sampling. The PAP sustained observatory has been the focus of repeated study of the entire water column and seabed since 1989.
