Upper Ocean Thermocline Response to Wind and Buoyancy Forcing in the Western Equatorial Pacific
Project SummaryAs part of the Enhanced Monitoring period (EM; September 1991-May 1994) of the TOGA Coupled Ocean-Atmosphere Response Experiment (COARE), an array of thermistor chain and conductivity moorings having surface meteorological packages were deployed and maintained in the climatically important warm pool of the western equatorial Pacific Ocean. This array was maintained for 2 years. Four cruises were conducted to accomplish this, during which CTD measurements were made to help calibrate the array and to further define the scales of temperature and salinity variability within the array.
