The bottom-mounted research instruments utilized by Processes Driving Exchange at Cape Hatteras (PEACH) scientists sit anywhere from 20 meters to more than 3000 meters beneath the surface of the ocean. These instruments measure the entire water column above using a variety of remote and in situ methods of data collection. […]



The R/V Neil Armstrong was tasked with deploying Argo floats into the Gulf Stream. Argo floats are designed to sink to around 1000m and drift along with the currents at that depth. After about 2 weeks of drifting at 1000m, they float back to the surface over approximately 6 hours, […]
