Abstract

In March 2009, two gliders began occupying a hydrographic endurance line for measurements of temperature, salinity, dissolved oxygen, optical backscatter, and fluorescence in the Levantine Sea south of Cyprus in a butterfly pattern over the Eratosthenes Seamount. The line will extend in space and time an historical one. Comparison with past hydrographic cruise data show similarities. In particular, a large anticyclonic eddy, the Cyprus Eddy, over the Eratosthenes Seamount dominates, with traces of Atlantic Water around the periphery. This eddy was investigated intensively by a fleet of gliders from November 2009 to January 2010.
