Abstract:

A cruise was carried out aboard RV ATLANTIS II from October 21 to November 8, 1971 leaving from and returning to Woods Hole, MA. Work was carried out primarily along the 70th W. meridian to a latitude of 28 degrees N. Five current meter moorings were recovered and ten set. Two acoustic transponder moorings, associated with six acoustic dropsonde profiles were set and recovered. Twenty-six CTD stations and ten hydrographic stations were taken. A mooring which had previously failed due to submersion and crushing of its surface float was recovered through dragging. Author
