As part of the Overturning in the Subpolar North Atlantic Program (OSNAP), 137 acoustically tracked RAFOS floats, using 13 moored sound sources, were deployed at five deployment locations (four around the Reykjanes Ridge and one east of Greenland), between 2014 and 2019. The floats were deployed within 200m of the sea floor (1800-2800m) and with density greater than 27.8. They recorded position, temperature, and pressure once a day.

Examining the origins of ocean heat content variability in the eastern North Atlantic subpolar gyre Foukal, Nicholas P.; Lozier, M. Susan (John Wiley & Sons, 2018-10-27)We analyze sources of ocean heat content (OHC) variability in the eastern North Atlantic subpolar gyre from both Eulerian and Lagrangian perspectives within two ocean simulations from 1990 to 2015. Heat budgets reveal that ...
Near-surface transport pathways in the north Atlantic Ocean : looking for throughput from the subtropical to the subpolar gyre Rypina, Irina I.; Pratt, Lawrence J.; Lozier, M. Susan (American Meteorological Society, 2011-05)Motivated by discrepancies between Eulerian transport estimates and the behavior of Lagrangian surface drifters, near-surface transport pathways and processes in the North Atlantic are studied using a combination of data, ...
Våge, Kjetil; Pickart, Robert S.; Thierry, Virginie; Reverdin, Gilles; Lee, Craig M.; Petrie, Brian; Agnew, Tom A.; Wong, Amy; Ribergaard, Mads H. (2008-11-07)The process of open-ocean convection in the subpolar North Atlantic Ocean forms a dense water mass that impacts the meridional overturning circulation and heat flux, and sequesters atmospheric carbon. In recent years the ...
