PurposeResearch
ObjectivesAs part of the RAPID programme, D298 aims to investigate variability of the Deep Western Boundary Current on timescales from days to millennia. Research focused on the Eirik Ridge region of the North Atlantic Ocean, south of Cape Farewell, Greenland. A combination of hydrographic and palaeoceanographic measurements and deployments were performed as part of the cruise. Additional datasets were obtained during the cruise for use by scientists at IFREMER, France. Mooring recoveries were also attempted/performed for Woods Hole and IFREMER.
