Project results

During the three-year project three cruises were performed, several eddies - both cyclonic and anticyclonic - were mapped acoustically and investigated more closely with in-situ measurements. Modelling was also done in order to investigate the processes at play.

A popular science summary of the project findings in Norwegian can be found here (an english translation of the text).
