PurposeResearch
ObjectivesObjectives:
1. To determine the interannual variability of the position, structure, transport & other properties of the ACC at Drake Passage.
2. By comparing geostrophic velocities with those from the lowered ADCP, determine the size of ageostrophic motions & attempt to estimate barotropic components.
3. To examine the temperature & salinity structure of water flowing through Drake Passage.
