Collection on the POLYMODE Program

 Collection — Multiple Containers
Identifier: AC-0321

The International POLYMODE Program was a bilateral US-USSR project to study mesoscale dynamics in the ocean to improve understanding of the role of eddy processes on scales of 50 to 500 kilometers. The materials constituting this collection include research and funding proposals, planning information, correspondence, meeting minutes, and scientific reports and data collected during ship cruises.

Mid-Ocean Dynamics Experiment records

 Collection — Multiple Containers
Identifier: AC-0042
Abstract The Mid-Ocean Dynamics Experiment (MODE-I), carried out between March and July of 1973, was a collection of twelve experimental and theoretical scientific projects performed simultaneously. Using different instruments to measure the same phenomena from dissimilar views, the project explored the role of mesoscale eddy motions in the dynamics of general oceanic circulation. The collection primarily consists of correspondence, notes, meeting minutes, proposals, strategy statements, and reports...
