Summary
Abstract: The Duke / UNC Oceanographic Consortium supported a four-day
exploratory cruise off North Carolina in August 2004, to survey physical and
biological properties in the vicinity of the cold-core eddies which form along
the inner edge of the Gulf Stream. This cruise was the result of a
collaborative proposal assembled by Richard Barber, Andy Read, Larry Crowder,
David Johnston, Veronica Lance, and David Hyrenbach.

Purpose: This cruise surveyed marine bird and mammal distributions in the
