The expedition 359 of research vessel Poseidon ()

The Azores Front with the associated Azores Current forms the northern boundary of the subtropical gyre in the eastern North Atlantic, not only for physical properties but also for plankton species which abundance very much depends on the nitrogen budget. P359 was a transit cruise for some technical tests, mostly underway systems. While passing mooring site K276 at 33°N, 022°W, a deep CTD cast could be taken to extend the long time series that has been obtained at this site since 1980 outside coastal states EEZ.
