Temperature and current data collected as part of the CLIvar MOde Water Dynamic Experiment (CLIMODE) mooring data from 2005-11 to 2007-11 in the North Atlantic, south-east of the Gulf Stream (NCEI Accession 0127259)

Two years of temperature, salinity, current, and nutrient data were collected on four subsurface moorings as part of a two-year field component of the CLIMODE experiment. This accession contains the temperature and current data from this experiment.

The moorings were located in the North Atlantic's subtropical gyre, southeast of the Gulf Stream. Two moorings, the most heavily instrumented, were close to the Gulf Stream, in the region where cold air outbreaks force large air-sea fluxes and where Eighteen Degree Water outcrops. Two other moorings were located farther south and carried more limited instrumentation. The moorings were initially deployed in November of 2005, turned around in November of 2006, and finally recovered in November of 2007. During the first year, the moorings close to the Gulf Stream suffered considerable blow down, and some of the instruments failed. During the second year, the blow down was greatly reduced and most instruments collected a full year’s worth of data.

CLIMODE project funded by the National Science Foundation, Division of Ocean Sciences

Submission Package ID: NLGNXU
Purpose The goal of the CLIMODE project is to study the dynamics of "Eighteen Degree Water" (EDW), the subtropical mode water of the North Atlantic. The purpose of collecting these data is to better understand the air-sea interaction, eddies and mixing, subduction and circulation, and provide a better understanding of these processes to use in ocean climate models.
