Convex 16 Mission

April 2016


The Slocum 403 Leonardo was deployed in the Southern Adriatic Sea. The purpose of the experiment was to study the post convection and the effect of the deep water formation in the North Adriatic Sea. The glider covered part of the transect Molfetta – Dubrovnik and an area close of the Italian slope to inquire about the dense water cascading. It was piloted down to almost 1000m deep in the area of the south-Adriatic pit.
