Abstract:

In late June, 1990, a 17-day cruise aboard RV ENDEAVOR was undertaken to investigate the manner in which the Deep Western Boundary Current DWBC crosses under the Gulf Stream. Forty-four CTD casts, comprising five sections, were made along with bottle measurements of Dissolved Oxygen, Nitrate, Nitrite, Phosphate, Silica, F- 11, and F- 12. An acoustic transport float POGO was deployed at each station to obtain a measurement of the upper layer transport. The shipboard Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler ADCP measured currents throughout the cruise. Mis report presents vertical profiles and sections of the bottle and CTD data, a vector map of the average POGO currents, and listings of the bottle data.
