The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution Buoy Group's field work for the international POLYMODE program consisted of deployment and recovery of seventy of the seventy- eight program moorings on eight research cruises. The mooring program consisted of four distinct experiments conducted from June of 1974 to November of 1979. A brief description of the arrays is provided, the mooring design process for a typical POLYMODE mooring is explained, and brief summaries are given of the WHO! deployment and recovery cruises. Appendix I is a schematic presentation of the chronological mooring history; Appendix Il lists details of the seventy WHO! moorings deployed in the POLYMUDE program and Appendix II I lists details of other WHOI moorings that may be of interest to investigators .
