Moored current meter data from the Atlantic north equatorial counter current near 6°N 28°W (March-October, 1984)
MetadataShow full item record
This third and final report presents current and wind data from a three part mooring deployment in the Atlantic North Equatorial Countercurrent near 6°N and 28°W. A Vector Averaging Wind Recorder (VAWR) measured wind velocity, sea surface temperature, air temperature, barometric pressure and solar insolation. Four Vector Measuring Current Meters (VMCM) measured current velocity and temperature at depths of 20, 75, 150, and 300m. The mooring was deployed on March 26, 1984 and recovered on October 12, 1984.
