An investigation conducted from the NOAA ship Researcher will examine the geophysical and geological environment along a Trans-Atlantic corridor, and measure solar radiation and conditions in the atmosphere and ocean in one of the world's great weather factories, the Intertropical Convergence Zone.
The project is being led by scientists from the Miami based Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratories, part of NOAA's Environmental Research Laboratories, with headquarters in Boulder, Colo. Scientists from Texas A&M University, Florida State University, and the Universities of Connecticut, Virginia, and Wisconsin, are participating with National Science Foundation support; University of Southern Florida investigators are being supported by the Office of Naval Research; scientists from Imperial College, London, England, are being supported by that institution.
