Palmer IES deployment Mooring deployment Work around the  clock

RVIB Nathaniel B. Palmer NBP 07-10
13 November 2007 - 7 December 2007


Overview

The NBP 07-10 cruise from 13 November through 7 December, 2007, marked the beginning of the cDrake field program. A transport line and a local dynamics array of 38 CPIES and 3 current meter moorings were deployed, spanning all of Drake Passage. The CPIES were calibrated with CTD measurements. In addition, velocity profiles measured by a LADCP were obtained coincident with the CTD profiles.
