The benthic boundary layer experiment on the Hatteras Abyssal Plain : current and temperature observations
MetadataShow full item record
The near bottom density and velocity fields above the Hatteras abyssal plain were observed with a current/temperature measuring array and a towed-yo-yoing profiler. This report describes the array data and includes details of calibration and data quality. Sources of direction error were diagnosed from vane and compass performance and bearing direction .

Bryden, Harry L. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1975-07)The local dynamics of low-frequency motions in the MODE region are investigated from three arrays of moored measurements of current and temperature. Tests for lowest-order balances of horizontal momentum, mass, heat, heat ...
