Three WHOI scientists were responsible for deploying the mooring systems in 2003 with help from IOS technicians and Coast Guard personnel: Andrey Proshutinsky, principal investigator, coordinated the effort and conducted ancillary observations, Willie Ostrom led the deployment operation, and Rick Krishfield prepared the instrumentation and assisted the deployment. With Bon van Hardenburg as Chief Scientist, a full survey of the hydrography and chemistry was also conducted by scientists from IOS and the Japan Marine Science and Technology Center (JAMSTEC).
