PurposeResearch
ObjectivesThis research is part of the US-led Overturning in the Subpolar North Atlantic Program (OSNAP), an effort to determine the strength of the meridional overturning circulation and associated heat and freshwater fluxes in the subpolar North Atlantic. It is a collaborative program with scientists from several nations, including the UK, Netherlands, Germany, France and Canada. Scientists from the US, UK, and Netherlands will participate in this cruise.

Objectives
1. To deploy 20 current meter and sound source moorings along a line from west of the Reykjanes Ridge to the coast of Scotland.
2. To conduct standard CTD (Conductivity-Temperature-Depth) and Lowered ADCP (Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler) stations at selected sites along the same mooring line.
3. To launch an array of acoustically tracked RAFOS floats at a number of sites near the mooring line.
