Project Description and Facility Requirements
Project Web Page:
Summary of Field Work: Two 4-day cruises are requested to deploy and then recover a tall mooring in the Gulf Stream SE of New England to test the prototype Lift Assisted Moored Profiler instrument. Ideally the deployment will be at least 6 months in duration.
Summary of Facility Requirements: Mooring deployment equipment (TSE winch, tuggers, various blocks and hooks). Crane for overboarding operations. CTD equipped with 12 x 10-liter rosette bottles.
Summary of other requirements or comments: We request some flexibility in sailing dates to finesse weather restrictions.

Owing to prior commitments of the WHOI mooring team, the preferred cruise periods are deployment in October 2019 and recovery in April/May, 2020. Fallback options are deployment in Spring 2020 with recovery late in that calendar year.
