About DynAMITEDynAMITE is an investigation of the processes underlying the Abyssal Upwelling Cell (AUC) in the western North Atlantic. It is comprised of 3 components:
- 1) Analysis of basin-scale PV distributions from climatology.
- 2) A moored transport array of profiling CTDs and current meters to measure the interior flows at depths between 1500 - 6000 m.
- 3) Microstructure measurements (using the High Resolution Profiler) between Bermuda and the MAR where upwelling is postulated to feed the interior flows
