Buoys hunting for data

Researchers and crew on the research vessel Knorr prepare to recover a meteorological buoy that had broken loose in February 2007. They were in transit to the fourth of six cruises in the CLIMODE research program. The three-year field campaign, which ended in November 2007, was designed by Senior Scientist Terry Joyce and colleagues to investigate the transfer of heat between the ocean and atmosphere at the eastern edge of the Gulf Stream, as well as the formation of 18° water masses that distinguish the region.
