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, that continued to operate after May 1982. These float data were obtained from Autonomous Listening Stations (ALSs) deployed from May 1982 to August 1985.

Kennelly, Maureen A.; McKee, Theresa K. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1984-11)Thirty-nine neutrally buoyant SOFAR floats were tracked in the western North Atlantic at depths of 700 m and 2000 m. These floats were launched in an effort to measure the deep current structure of the Gulf Stream and ...
Pickart, Robert S. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1987-01)The various distributions of tracer associated with the Northern Recirculation Gyre of the Gulf Stream (NRG) are studied to try to obtain information about the flow. An advective-diffusive numerical model is implemented to ...
Beliakova, Natalia Y. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1999-02)This thesis studies the problems of generation and maintenance of recirculations by Gulf Stream instabilities. Observations show that the horizontal structure of the jet and its recirculations suffer significant changes ...
