A special thanks goes to those who helped make Deep Western Boundary Current observations over many years: Robert Molinari, Doug Wilson, Libby Johns, Mark Bushnell, Doug Anderson, David Bittermann, Ulises Rivero, Robert Roddy, Andrew Stefanick, Pedro Pena, and Kyle Seaton, and the crew of the NOAA Ship Ronald H. Brown, the UNOLS R/V Endeavor, R/V Knorr, R/V Oceanus, R/V Seward Johnson and the R/V Cape Hatteras and the UK R/V Discoverer.

The Florida Current time series owes thanks to Joaquin Trinanes, Ansley Manke, David Bitterman, Douglas Anderson, Ryan Smith, Ulises Rivero, Rex Johnson, Douglas Luther, Douglas Wilson, and of course Dr. Jimmy Larsen, who started this project and ran it for many successful years. Calibration cruises have been conducted thanks to the crew of the UNOLS R/V Walton Smith, the Sailfish Marina and numerous small fishing boats, and the NOAA Ship Hildebrand.
