Moored current meter data from the Atlantic north equatorial counter current near 6°N 28°W (February-September, 1983) : vol. XXXIV
MetadataShow full item record
This report presents current and wind data from the first of three surface mooring deployments in the Atlantic North Equatorial Countercurrent near 6°N and 28°W. A Vector Averaging Wind Recorder (VAWR) measured wind velocity, sea surface temperature and air temperature, barometric pressure and solar insolation. Four Vector Measuring Current Meters (VMCM) measured current velocity and temperature at depths of 20, 50, 75 and 150m. The mooring was deployed on February 25 and recovered (and replaced) on September 13, 1983 .
