Map of the eastern, tropical North Atlantic with the route of the meteor (Fig. 2) from 13 to 15 September 2015 (black line). The sea surface temperatures of 14 September 2015 are shown in colour, the arrows indicate the direction and strength of the wind at that time. The turbulence measurements with the microstructure probe (image 3) are marked by the light blue diamonds and the position of the PIRATA buoy (image 4) is marked by the light blue star.
