The Patch Experiment (PATCHEX) was a multi-ship experiment that took place in the area near 34 N, 127 W, between 8 and 27 October, 1986. The ships used in the experiment and their chief scientific objectives were the following: R/V THOMPSON, AMP (Advanced Microstructure Profiler) and MSP (micro-structure profiler) drops; USNS DESTEIGUER, ADCP (Acoustic Doppler current Profiler), seasoar and RiNo (Richardson Number) f loat operations; R/V POINT SUR, ADCP and towed fish; and FLIP, Acoustic Doppler and CTD profiling. This report describes the RiNo operations carried out on the USNS DESTEIGUER. Topics discussed include the RiNo float, the sensors used, how it was tracked, some of the preliminary results, and a log of the relevant parts of USNS DESTEIGUER Cruise #84.
