  • An exploration of the North Atlantic current and its recirculation in the Newfoundland basin using SOFAR floats 

    Owens, W. Brechner; Zemanovic, Marguerite E. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1990-07)
    Trajectories and time series of velocity, temperature, and pressure are presented for 13 neutrally-buoyant, acoustically tracked (SOFAR) floats that were launched in May and June, 1986 in the Newfoundland Basin by the ...
  • Gulf Stream recirculation experiment - Part II 

    Wooding, Christine M.; Owens, W. Brechner; Zemanovic, Marguerite E.; Valdes, James R. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1989-09)
    This report presents trajectories and time series of velocity, pressure, and temperature for twelve neutrally-buoyant floats launched during the Gulf Stream Recirculation EXperiment (GUSREX) and two from earlier experiments, ...
  • SOFAR float Mediterranean outflow experiment : summary and data from 1986-88 

    Zemanovic, Marguerite E.; Richardson, Philip L.; Price, James F. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1990-01)
    In October, 1984, the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution SOFAR float group began a three and a half year field program to measure the velocity field of the Mediterranean water in the eastern North Atlantic. The principal ...
  • SOFAR float trajectories from an experiment to measure the Atlantic cross equatorial flow (1989-1990) 

    Richardson, Philip L.; Zemanovic, Marguerite E.; Wooding, Christine M.; Schmitz, William J.; Price, James F. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1992-08)
    Neutrally buoyant SOFAR floats at nominal depths of 800, 1800, and 3300 m were tracked for 21 months in the vicinity of western boundary currents near 6N and at several sites in the Atlantic near 11N and along the equator. ...
  • SOFAR float trajectories in the tropical Atlantic 1989-1992 

    Richardson, Philip L.; Zemanovic, Marguerite E.; Wooding, Christine M.; Schmitz, William J. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1994-09)
    Neutrally buoyant SOFAR floats at nominal depths of 800 m, 1800 m, and 3300 m were tracked acoustically for 3.7 years in the vicinity of the western boundary and the equator of the Atlantic Ocean. Trajectories and summaries ...
