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 .

Horizontal divergence and vorticity estimates from velocity and temperature measurements in the MODE region Bryden, Harry L.; Fofonoff, Nicholas P. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1977-11)Estimates of horizontal derivatives of velocity made by differencing velocity measurements are used to show that the observed velocity field due to low-frequency mesoscale motions during the preliminary MidOcean Dynamics ...
