Abstract: This work addresses the design and configuration of a Eulerian sediment trap mooring array, which was deployed at the shelf edge (z m ≈ 140 m) 80 km off Cabo Frio, SE-Brazil (23° S). The site was subject to interplay between the Tropical Waters (TW) of the Brazil Current (BC), intrusions from the South Atlantic Central Waters (SACW), which are the source of upwelling in the region, and other oceanographic processes. Detailed computations were used to optimize the total weight, buoyancy balance, and maximum acc… Show more
