  1. In your AMOC paper, the “Southern Ocean Current Observations from the US Antarctic Research Vessels” link in your Table1a is broken. The new link is

    Another relevant observational program (your Figure 3 and Table 1a) is cDrake, a transport line and local dynamics array of current and pressure recording inverted echo sounders (CPIES) in Drake Passage. cDrake stands for CPIES in Drake Passage, and the project website is

    The array was deployed in Nov/Dec 2007 and will be in place for 4 years. We collect daily-averaged data via annual telemetry cruises. The full, high frequency data set (10-min acoustic travel times, 30-min bottom pressures, hourly bottom currents) will be available after recovery in 2011. One of our project’s goals is to design a long-term monitoring array for transport. Our intent is to propose the monitoring array with enough lead time that there is no gap in the observational record.
