Science Objectives

Studies of lateral mixing in the upper ocean with: (i) Knorr-  towed, undulating profilers (Triaxus and Seasoar) and Lagrangian floats and (ii) Atlantis- moving vessel profilers, gliders and drifters. A Lagrangian float will be released at selected sites. The float will be tracked acoustically by Knorr. Knorr will conduct small-scale (~5 km) surveys around the drifting float while Atlantis occupies a larger (20km) pattern around Knorr. Both ships will follow the drifting float. Surveys will last 1-5 days.

Science Activities

Knorr will support:
(1) Towed surveys of an limited domain using the Triaxus undulating towed profiler (APL-UW)
(2) Delpoyment and recovery of Lagrangian floats.

The Lagrangian float will be released at selected sites and tracked acoustically by Knorr. Knorr will conduct small-scale (~5 km) surveys around the float, following its drift. These deployments will last 1-5 days. We anticipate executing 3-6 deployments over the course of the cruise.

We anticipate operations in rough weather, as part of the science program requires strong wind forcing.
