PurposeResearch
ObjectivesThis cruise is a contribution to the international Overturning in the Subpolar North Atlantic Programme (OSNAP). Two additional scientific teams (from Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences, and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution / Ocean University of China) participated in this cruise. SAMS objectives were to recover and redeploy moorings in the Rockall Trough, measuring temperature, salinity, currents and bottom pressure and; recover Seaglider SG605 Bowmore in the Hatton-Rockall Basin.

The OSNAP array deployed since July 2014 is purposefully designed to provide a continuous record of the full-water column, trans-basin fluxes of heat, mass and freshwater in the subpolar North Atlantic, on a section from Newfoundland to Greenland to Scotland.
