The Samoan Passage is a nozzle on the slow northward flow of water from the Antarctic to the North Pacific, and a “choke point” in the general circulation.


We’re funded by the National Science Foundation to map the seafloor, measure the flow and its turbulence, and figure out how best to monitor the flow in the future for improving climate change predictions.
