This transect is located nominally along 30°N extending from the Straits of Gibraltar in the eastern Atlantic to the east coast of the United States at Miami, Florida, and was implemented in 1994. This latitude is ideal for monitoring the meridional heat transport in the North Atlantic along 30°N, in conjunction with Florida Cable and dropsondes measurements. This transect has also been identified as being key to assess decadal variability in the North Atlantic Ocean.
