PurposeResearch
ObjectivesThe 2009 RAPID-WAVE cruise onboard CCGS Hudson aimed at recovering and redeploying the RS array first deployed in 2008. The ship sailed at 8:30 local time on the 26th September and returned to port on the 3rd October at 19:30. All moorings were recovered by 30 September 2009. All instruments were in good state, except for a flooded ADCP. Three other ADCPs run out of power between three and two months before the recovery. All data was downloaded and examined to detect potential instrument problems or malfunctions and deemed to be generally of good quality. Deployments took place between 30-09-2009 and 02-10-2009. All were successful.
