PAP November 2020
The November 2020 mooring was deployed on cruise DY116 after a six month delay due to COVID restrictions.
The 30m frame was not deployed and only surface instrumentation is available in NRT.
Below are the graphs generated in near-real time from data gathered at PAP and transmitted via iridium servers.

Other data, including that from the two microcat sensors, are being collected at the site but are not transmitted in near-real time.
After recovery, data are archived at the British Oceanographic Data Centre (BODC) and can be accessed at: BODC PAP Collection
