This NCEI accession contains data collected during the Salinity Processes in the Upper Ocean Regional Study - North Atlantic Field Campaign (SPURS-1). The campaign consisted of a variety of observing assets. SPURS-1 took place in the subtropical North Atlantic in 2012-2014. The purpose of the experiment was to examine the processes responsible for maintaining the subtropical surface salinity maximum in the North Atlantic Ocean.
