Dr. Speer and the UK-1 DIMES (JC41) Cruise through the western Drake Passage

Dr. Speer is completing a successful cruise aboard the RRS James Cook. The central goal of the cruise was to deploy 9 moorings in 4 distinct areas. Six of the moorings will be deployed in a cluster of 15 km diameter in the northern Drake Passage. Their main purpose is to investigate how the energetic mesoscale eddies of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC) are dissipated, and how they interact with the regional internal wave field. For more information, visit the DIMES website.
