Moored profiler

Profiles in Currents

Kjetil Vaage (blue hat), from the University of Bergen, Norway and a former student in the MIT-WHOI Joint Program, helps prepare a moored profiler for deployment north of Fram Strait between Greenland and Norway in August 2012. The profiler automatically travels up and down the mooring wire, making detailed records of temperature, salinity, and current velocity at different ocean depths all the while. Vaage is working with WHOI scientist Robert Pickart and others in an international effort to study the flow of warm water around Svalbard, Norway, and into the Arctic Ocean.
