Abstract
An array of three moorings (M1-M3) with current meters, temperature, conductivity, and pressure (TCP) recorders were deployed along the eastern flank of the continental shelf off Sabrina Coast, at the main path of the Antarctic Coastal Current indicated by the uCTD data collected earlier during the cruise. These three US mooring were deployed at the 625-m (M1), 620-m (M2) and 1051-m (M3) isobaths. M1 was recovered on 25 February 2014, with a full data return from all of its instruments; whereas M2 and M3 were recovered in early 2015 on board of the Australian RVI Aurora Australis next year (cruise AU1402). The location and schematics of the mooring array design is described below, and also provided among the uploaded files.
