The New England Shelfbreak Front PRIMER Experiment
Winter '97 Deployment
The Primer '97 experiment was conducted to study the acoustic scattering and oceanography of shelfbreak fronts in the Winter and to compare these
results with the Primer '96 experiment we conducted the previous summer in the same place.
This web site was a "real-time" link from the research vessel to
show what was happening
at that time at the Primer Shelfbreak site, or, in other words, "what it was like to be on a ship in the northern Atlantic in
the winter". The dates on the left border give the day to day account
of what transpired at sea and the photo album contains the pictures
that were taken during the cruise.
