PAP July 2005

The ANIMATE PAP moorings were serviced by Discovery cruise D296 in June 2005.

27 July 2005

The telemetry buoy and the five Microcats down to 80m broke loose after 07:00 on 27 July 2005 utc and began drifting. It is hoped that RRS Discovery will be able to recover these pieces of equipment.

The drifting part of the 2005 mooring has been recovered by the RRS Discovery which is currently undertaking the annual Atlantic Meridional Transect cruise (AMT). Many thanks to the scientists and crew.

After recovery, data were archived at the British Oceanographic Data Centre (BODC) and can be accessed at: BODC PAP Collection, and temperature, salinity, conductivity and pressure data can be retrieved in user selected formats from the BODC ERDDAP service.
