The Diapycnal and Isopycnal Mixing Experiment in the Southern Ocean (DIMES) was designed as a multi-pronged US and UK CLIVAR effort to measure and to better understand diapycnal mixing and along-isopycnal eddy transport in the Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC), because these processes together appear to play a key role in the Merdional Overturning Circulation (MOC) (Gille et al., 2007).
