Almost immediately, using conventional hydrography and a novel neutrally buoyant float that John Swallow (UK Institute of Ocean Sciences) had recently invented, Val Worthington (WHOI) and Swallow discovered the "Deep Western Boundary Current" part of the scheme on the Continental Rise south of Cape Cod.
Swallow's neutrally buoyant floats have evolved considerably over the last 40 years.
To characterize larval transport in the specific flows near the 9 [degrees] N East Pacific Rise study site, current meters have been deployed along the ridge axis, and future studies using neutrally buoyant floats are being planned.
