Abstract:

The objectives of the Gulf of Cadiz Expedition were to observe the vortices shed in the wake of Ampere Seamount, to survey Meddies formed by the Mediterranean outflow near Cape St. Vincent, Portugal, and to study the structure and dynamics of the outflow plume west of the Strait of Gibraltar. During the Expedition September 4-28, 1988, velocity, hydrographic, and dissipation measurements were made using a variety of instrument systems XCP, XDP, XBT, XSV, CTD, and ADCP. Related work discussed includes Secondary circulation in the Faroe Bank channel outflow Turbulence and mixing in the Strait of Gibraltar and Lagrangian observation in the Mediterranean outflow in the Iberian Basin.
