Indian Ocean

TRACK

The TRACK cruises have helped to quantify the ACC transport through the Fawn Trough passage and its variabilty, and to determine the exchanges between circumpolar waters on both sides of the Plateau. 

CIRENE

The CIRENE program involved several  oceanographic cruises in the TRIO (Thermocline Ridge of the Indian Ocean) region, around [55°E-80°E, 10°S-3°S], with the main cruise in January-February 2007, in order to collect oceanic, atmospheric and fluxes measurements. The main objectives of the CIRENE experiment was to document the processes of SST variations and the ocean-atmosphere coupling at several timescales in the TRIO region.
