ATOMS04 Sea Trial

A full scale sea trial off the Cape São Vicente tooke place on October 22 - 26, 2004 involving the NRP D. Carlos I research vessel (see ATOMS'04 Test Plan here). Due to adverse weather conditions only environmental and chemical data could be gathered. This included CTD, ADCP and water samples. During that period a later summer filament was present in the area as it can be seen in the SST picture of day 22 Oct (below) and then on the measured CTD data on day Oct 24.
