Experiment name: ACM29 (Labrador Sea) Principal Investigator: J.Lazier/P.Rhines PI's affiliation: Bedford Inst Oc Mooring Name: 1255 Mooring position: 56.725 deg N, 52.482 deg W Instrument depth: 1750 - 3518 meters Seafloor depth: 3518 meters Times: starts 25 May 1997, ends 04 Jun 1998 Time increment: 60 minutes Instrument type: Aanderaa RCM8 parameter min mean max sd days temp (deg C) 1.50 1.65 2.89 0.07 374.1 The mooring broke about 12 hours after installation, and lost its upper buoyancy. This instrument, originally at a depth of 1750 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 3518 m, The temperature sensor appears to have malfunctioned during the final 26 days of the deployment. CMDAC has removed this portion of the temperature series.
