Acoustic doppler current profiling in the Western Pacific during the WOCE P10 cruise, November/December 1993
MetadataShow full item record
Papua, New Guinea
The objective of this cruise was to occupy a hydrographic section nominally along 149E from Papua New Guinea to the shelf off the coast of Japan near Yokohama as part of the one-time WOCE Hydrographic Programe survey of the Pacific Ocean, line P10. This report describes the processing of shipboard acoustic Doppler current profier (ADCP) data that were collected during this cruise. New GPS-based heading measurements ("Ashtech heading"). which increase the accuracy of the ADCP, are covered in detail. A subset of the processed data from the New Guinea Coastal Undercurrent and from the Kuroshio is presented.

The Subduction experiment : cruise report R/V Oceanus : cruise number 240 leg 3 : subduction 1 mooring deployment cruise, 17 June-5 July 1991 Trask, Richard P.; Brink, Nancy J. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1993-03)Subduction is the mechanism by which water masses formed in the mixed layer and near the surface of the ocean find their way into the upper thermocline. The subduction process and its underlying mechanisms were studied ...
