Abstract

Profiles made during the North Atlantic Bloom Experiment with a Large Aggregate Profiling System (LAPS) recorded the concentration and distribution of particles in the marine snow-size range (>0.5 mm diameter) while simultaneously recording salinity, temperature, depth, and beam attenuation. Five profiles were made at the 47°N, 20°W station. To measure diel variations, four profiles were made within a 24-hour period (April 19–20, 1989); a fifth profile was made two days later.
