Moored current meter and wind recorded measurements near Point Conception, California : the 1983 OPUS observations
MetadataShow full item record
LocationPoint Conception, California
The OPUS (Organization of Persistent Upwelling Structures) program deployed two current meter (VMCM) moorings near Point Conception, California, during April-July 1983. Current and temperature data from these moorings are summarized here. In addition, data from two nearby NDBC (National Data Buoy Center) meteorological buoys are presented.
