Experiment name: ACM29 (Labrador Sea) Principal Investigator: J.Lazier/P.Rhines PI's affiliation: Bedford Inst Oc Mooring Name: 1246 Mooring position: 56.164 deg N, 52.974 deg W Instrument depth: 3347 meters Seafloor depth: 3397 meters Times: starts 22 Oct 1996, ends 06 Jul 1998 Time increment: 120 minutes Instrument type: Aanderaa RCM8 parameter min mean max sd days temp (deg C) 1.43 1.68 1.90 0.10 621.8 The mooring broke less than 3 days after installation, and lost its upper buoyancy. This instrument, originally at a depth of 3347 m, is believed to have spent the remainder of the deployment on or near the bottom. Only the temperature series was salvaged. Temperatures after the incident are reasonable for a near-bottom should be aware that for most of this record the temperatures are to be regarded as characteristic of the seafloor, at 3397 m,
