The TAO/EPIC Project
As part of the Eastern Pacific Investigation of Climate Processes' (EPIC), the 95°W TAO/TRITON line has been enhanced with extra sensors and moorings to monitor heat, moisture and momentum fluxes, and upper ocean temperature, salinity and horizontal currents from the stratus deck region at 8°S, 95°W through the cold tongue to 12°N, 95°W, north of the intertropical convergence zone. The enhancements began in fall 1999 and will continue for 3-4 years.
