Purpose The two primary purposes of the cruise were to complete a regularly occupied hydrography section from the Bahamas to approximately 70?W as part of the AOML Western Boundary Time Series (WBTS) project, and to service the UK operated moorings deployed in the same region. The UK moorings work was lead by Darren Rayner.
