Dataset Title CORIOLIS: Continuous oceanic sup-polar North Atlantic surface measurements of physical and chemical oceanographic data and isotopomes
Dataset Purpose Coriolis coordinates the French contribution to the Argo international array by deploying between 60 and 80 floats per year. It systematically acquires observations from most of the French research vessels. It deploys between 10 to 20 surface drifters per year
Dataset Abstract This dataset contains observations of ocean variability from interannual to decadal scales measured during two missions: OVIDE mission and SURATLANT
Acquisition Methodology Oceanic sup-polar North Atlantic surface sampling. It provides continuous measurements of physical oceanographic data, isotopomes ad chemical oceanographic data.

Description Started in 2002, the OVIDE project contributes to the observation of the circulation elements in the subpolar gyre of the North Atlantic, to better understand climate variability of the North Atlantic Ocean and its interactions with the atmosphere in a warming climate. Some features are particularly monitored in this region because they are essential for their impact on the climate of Europe : the magnitude and the variability of the meridional overturning circulation are followed, as well as the mechanisms and sites of formation of subpolar mode waters.
