The R/V Knorr in "warm" weather conditions. (Christopher Griner©WHOI)
Welcome to the Labrador Sea Deep Convection Experiment Knorr meteorology pages. These pages contain descriptions of meteorology data obtained on board the R/V Knorr as part of the Labrador Sea Deep Convection Experiment. There were two cruises, in 1997 and 1998. In 1997 several atmospheric scientists were making measurements from the ship. In 1998, there were no atmospheric types, but basic met data was recorded on the ship's "IMET" system.
The analyses of these data are ongoing. Several researchers have formed an e-mail working group to organize atmospheric studies of the Labrador Seas. Click here for more details on the working group.
This site shows some of the preliminary in situ Knorr results of the Labrador Sea Deep Convection Experiment meteorology research program . Here you can find links to some plots of surface meteorology variables and descriptions of available data sets.
