Porter, M; Inall, M; Green, JAM; Simpson, JH; Dale, AC; Miller, PI;

During the summer of 2012, 20 surface drifters drogued at 50 m depth were deployed on the continental slope to the north of the Bay of Biscay. Initially after release the drifters all crossed the slope, with 14 continuing equatorward, parallel to the slope following an ... View more
