Introduction

This report collates information from the BODC cruise inventory and oceanographic databases. It presents

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RV Atlantic Explorer (33H4) cruise AE1833
Short name AE1833
Objectives and Narrative Objectives

1. Service (recover and redeploy) 3 tall current meter moorings and 1 short ("bottom-lander") mooring located off the eastern Bahamas along latitude 26.5N
2. Retrieve data from 6 pressure-equipped inverted echo sounders (PIES) by underwater acoustic telemetry, and recover and redeploy one C-PIES (a PIES with integrated deep current meter)
3. Conduct CTD (Conductivity-Temperature-Depth) and Lowered ADCP (Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler) sections across the Florida Current at 27N, the Northwest Providence Channel, and along the 26.5N RAPID-MOCHA western boundary line east of Abaco, Bahamas
4. Perform two additional deep-water CTD casts to calibrate moored instrumentation
5. Recover a deep glider operated by the University of Washington along the Abaco 26.5N line
6. Perform additional work including a shipboard ADCP survey of the Antilles Current and/or CTD/LADCP stations along the 26N Florida Current section as time permits
