As can be seen in Figure 22 below, we captured two particularily interesting events during the second deployment of CMO.

Hydrog 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).
