Though we have not yet been successful in our goals, we nonetheless have discovered some very interesting, vigorous cold overflow events from the Maui deep, which have been published in GRL:
M. H. Alford, R. Lukas, B. Howe, A. Pickering, and F. Santiago-Mandujano. Moored observations of episodic abyssal flow and mixing at station ALOHA. Geophys. Res. Lett., 38(L15606):1–6, 2011.
In the numerous trips to and from the mooring and while we worked on it, we also obtained some unprecedented views of the internal tide beams emanating from Kauai Channel, with the 38-KHz ADCP aboard the ship. These will be submitted soon to GRL.
