This NERC funded project (Grant GR3/9601) set out to observe density-driven circulation in the western irish Sea. Hydrographic data from CTDs were already banked with BODC. This is here supplemented by the Searover data and the tracks of free-floating satellite-tracked Argos drifters drogued at the level of the thermocline.
