, both the northeast (NE) and southwest (SW) moorings suffered an implosion of buoyancy, so they only collected usable data until 27 January and 3 February, respectively. In addition, the bottom current meter on the southeast (SE) mooring was lost. On account of this, the analysis in this paper predominantly uses data from the center (C) mooring. After data recovery, a series of processing steps developed initially for the North Atlantic RAPID array was carried out as quality control ( Collins et al

has used hydrographic and velocity finescale data to estimate diapycnal mixing rates in this region ( Garabato et al. 2004 ; Thompson et al. 2007 ; Sloyan et al. 2010 ; Wu et al. 2011 ; Whalen et al. 2012 ). Thorpe-scale analysis ( Thorpe 1977 ) and shear/strain-based methods ( Kunze et al. 1990 ) are most commonly used to estimate microscale quantities. However, recent work has shown the potential for biases between mixing rates inferred from both of those methods and those from direct
