Work consisted of the recovery of three current meter moorings at Site D 39 deg 10 min N, 70 deg 00 min W, the deployment of six bottom moorings on the continental slope, and of two intermediate moorings north and south of the Gulf Stream, the recovery of a surface engineering test at Site L 34 deg N, 70 deg W, and the deployment of a new engineering surface mooring at Site L. Twenty-two CCTDs, three hydro stations, and three plankton tows were also taken.
