  Vertical depolarizing resonances in the AGS are removed by partial Siberian snakes. These magnets move the stable spin direction and lead to horizontal depolarizing resonances. The tune jump quadrupole system increases the crossing rate for horizontal resonances by a factor of six. This presentation will review the fundamental mechanism of depolarizing resonances, the partial Siberian snake solution and describe recent experimental evidence at the AGS demonstrating improvements to beam polarization and the beam dynamics challenges posed by the tune jump.
