A compilation and description of hydrographic transects of the Mid-Atlantic Bight shelf-break front
MetadataShow full item record
Historical hydrographic transects of the Mid-Atlantic Bight shelf-break front are compiled by month and described in this report. Interannual variability of the meteorological forcing and slope water mass properties are presented as an aid in interpreting the variability of the frontal structure. Descriptions of the significant features of the front, shelf and slope water masses precede the compiled transects. The sections are limited to the upper 350 m of the water column and a cross-shore extent of 280m.

(American Meteorological Society, 2008-11)Six-yr-long time series of winds, waves, and water velocity from a cabled coastal observatory in 12 m of water reveal the separate dependence of the cross-shelf velocity profile on cross-shelf and along-shelf winds, waves, ...
Flagg, Charles Noel (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1977-04)A 37 day long field program was carried out in March 1974 on the New England continental shelf break to study the current and hydrographic structure and variability on the shelf and in the shelf/slope front. A second ...
