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.

Annual and semiannual cycle of equatorial Atlantic circulation associated with basin-mode resonance Brandt, Peter; Claus, Martin; Greatbatch, Richard J.; Kopte, Robert; Toole, John M.; Johns, William E.; Böning, Claus W. (American Meteorological Society, 2016-10-05)Seasonal variability of the tropical Atlantic circulation is dominated by the annual cycle, but semiannual variability is also pronounced, despite weak forcing at that period. This study uses multiyear, full-depth velocity ...
