Craig Stevens Sailing Straight on the Strait
Brett Grant deploys a turbulence profiler in Cook Strait.  The turbulent mixing controls how waters travelling through the strait are re-distributed.  This mixing affects the ocean circulation throughout the Central NZ region so that water originally say off Westport might find its way into the Marlborough Sounds, or pushed up past Castle Point or maybe even down into one of the canyons falling east from the Strait.
