Norpax (North Pacific Experiment) scientists are planning to operate a large oceanographic research vessel (or vessels) along 150°W between Hawaii and Tahiti for about 16 months beginning January 1979. The tentative schedule calls for one round trip every two months. This will involve about 20 days at sea on each leg, southbound and northbound.
The primary tasks to be performed are the making of hydrographic sections, the deployment and tending of moored oceanographic instruments, the launching of drifting buoys, and the gathering of atmospheric observations for the FGGE data set. In addition to these primary tasks, space will be made available to other researchers on an as-available basis. Priority will be given to those projects related to large-scale air-sea interaction, but anyone interested should apply.
