PurposeResearch
ObjectivesR/V Endeavor cruise number 440 contributed to a joint Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory research program funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation that is investigating the characteristics and consequences of interannual variations in the Northwest Atlantic's Deep Western Boundary Current (DWBC). The Woods Hole component of the cruise (project Line W) is closely linked to the UK's RAPID Climate Change Programme.
