The AOML contribuiton in this observational system consists of the following elements:
- Provide transport measurements within the Florida Straits including continuous cable measurements and small boat section estimates;
- Full-water-column hydrographic surveys of the Antilles and Deep Western Boundary Currents and the servicing of moorings;
- Deployment of inverted echo sounder moorings in the western boundary array; and
- Measurements of upper ocean temperature using expendable bathythermographs and profiling floats.
