CTD, shipboard ADCP, and lowered ADCP data from the Red Sea Outflow Experiment (REDSOX) and an earlier Red Sea cruise in 2001 (NCEI Accession 0146147)

browse graphicPreview graphic
This dataset is a collection of oceanographic data from the two 2001 “REDSOX” cruises in the Gulf of Aden in addition to a set of data collected in the Red Sea before REDSOX-2. Core data are from CTD/O2 and lowered ADCP systems plus shipboard ADCP measurements. Ancillary data and documentation are provided.

The main objectives of REDSOX are: 1) To describe the pathways and downstream evolution of the descending outflow plumes of Red Sea Water in the western Gulf of Aden; 2) To quantify the processes that control the final depth of the equilibrated Red Sea Outflow Water; and 3) To identify the transport processes and mechanisms that advect Red Sea Outflow Water and its properties through the Gulf of Aden and into the Indian Ocean. The data from the Red Sea were taken as a piggy back onto the main experiment during the second REDSOX cruise.
