Eastward and northward components of ocean current velocity and water temperature collected from moorings in North East Pacific Coast from 1971-02-03 to 1971-11-15 (NCEI Accession 0163565)

Metadata Updated: December 4, 2020

The University of Washington maintained an Inshore and Offshore mooring off the coast of Washington as part of the Continental Shelf Experiment 1971. Most of the current meters used were Braincon type 381 (14), but 5 Aanderaa model RCM-4s were introduced on the October moorings. Speed and direction were measured and rotated to true North, then resolved into u and v components. The Aanderaa meters had temperature sensors. Data was sampled in 10 minute intervals and edited for spurious values. A more complete description of the data can be found in: Smith, Hickey, Beck, 1976, Observations from moored current meters on the Washington Continental Shelf from February 1971 to February 1974, University of Washington, Department of Oceanography, Special Report 65. Data file format is plain text.
