Knorr in Denmark Strait

A Journey North

In August 2011, research vessel Knorr left Iceland for the Denmark Strait to deploy a dozen moorings that will be collected one year later. Instruments on the moorings help WHOI scientists and their international collaborators track currents that replenish warm, north-flowing Gulf Stream wate with cold, dense, south-flowing water. Understanding these currents helps scientists better understand how changes in their circulation affect the Atlantic—and global—climate system.
