Central Pacific Ocean
This report presents meteorological data recorded by the MR on the three deployments of Tropic Heat moorings, within 1.5 degrees north and south of the equator at approximately 134°W and 140°W. Parameters recorded included vector averaged wind speed and direction, air and sea temperatures, insolation, barometric pressure, and relative humidity although not all parameters were recorded on all deployments . The deployments were all nominally six months . Data recovery was poor because of instrument and mooring failures.

Spall, Michael A.; Thomas, Leif N. (American Meteorological Society, 2016-10-07)Downfront, or downwelling favorable, winds are commonly found over buoyant coastal plumes. It is known that these winds can result in mixing of the plume with the ambient water and that the winds influence the transport, ...
