Flanking Subsurface Mooring A

Reference Designator
Array Name
Global Irminger Sea
Flanking Subsurface Moorings are located at global sites and contain instruments fixed at specific depths along the mooring riser. The flotation buoy for subsurface moorings is located below the sea surface. As they have no surface expression, these moorings communicate and send data to shore via an acoustic link to nearby gliders.

Deployment: 3

Due to glider failures, there will be no telemetered data from this platform starting around 1/8/2017. Data will be available when the mooring is recovered (anticipated recovery in July 2017).
