WHOI senior engineer Jim Valdes and physical oceanographer Amy Bower inspect an innovative new carousel device designed to automatically release
a yellow float when warm water eddies pass. The
carousel carries six floats, each of which will travel with a different eddy in the Labrador Sea and measure its water properties. The carousel, and the mooring which supports it, was deployed in late September.
