Abstract : MILDEX, a mixed layer dynamics experiment, began October 21, 1983 and lasted November 16, 1983. R. P. Flip, R. V. Wecoma and R. V. Acania rendezvoused at 34 N, 127 W to participate in joint observations of the mixed layer and upper ocean. This report contains data from the Wave Zone Profiler, WAZP II, deployed from the R. V. Wecoma. The WAZP II is a vertically rising microstructure profiler with sensors designed to obtain kinetic energy dissipation rates and microstructure information near the sea surface. WAZP II was deployed over block periods during the cruise beginning October 25 and ending November 12, GMT. Work was done in daylight with the ship moving at about 1/2 knot (just enough to maintain heading into the swell). Time between casts was approximately nine minutes, with each drop lasting roughly two minutes.
