Current meter data from moored current meter casts in the North Atlantic Ocean as part of the Outer Continental Shelf - Georges Bank (OCS - Georges Bank) project from 1977-09-22 to 1978-11-10 (NCEI Accession 7900325)

Metadata Updated: July 28, 2023

Current meter data were collected using moored current meter casts in the North Atlantic Ocean from September 22, 1977 to November 10, 1978. Data were submitted by Edgerton, Germeshausen and Grier, Inc. as part of the Outer Continental Shelf - Georges Bank (OCS - Georges Bank) project. Data were processed by NODC to the NODC standard Current Meter Data (F015) format.

The F015 format is used for time series measurements of ocean currents. These data are obtained from current meter moorings and represent Eulerian method of current measurement, i.e., the meters are deployed at a fixed point and measure flow past a sensor. Position, bottom depth, sensor depth, and meter characteristics are reported for each station. The data record comprises values of east-west (u) and north-south (v) current vector components at specified date and time. Current direction is defined as the direction toward which the water is flowing with positive directions east and north and negative directions west and south. Data values may be subject to averaging or filtering and are typically reported at 10-15 minute time intervals. Water temperature, pressure, and conductivity or salinity may also be reported. A text record is available for optional comments.
