Rapid Climate Change (RAPID and RAPID-WATCH)
Information about RAPID and RAPID-WATCH moored instrument arrays can be found here.
The majority of moorings deployed during the RAPID programme are for projects that are monitoring the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (MOC).
The MOC component of RAPID specifically focuses on measuring and modelling the thermohaline circulation in the North Atlantic.
Projects that have moorings and are not part of the MOC will address the broader science objectives of RAPID.
