As can be seen in Figure 22 below, we captured two particularily interesting events
during the second deployment of CMO.
Fig. 22: Temperature, Salinity, Density, and Velocity
The first event occurred on Julian Day 292 (October 18). Several fronts passed
through the CMO site prior to and following a northeasterly storm (October 20).
(See also Figure 17).

The second notable event was the advection of a warm water mass occurring on
approximately Julian Day 350 (December 15).
