Currents, temperature, conductivity, attenuation, and sigma-theta data from moorings deployed off the coast of Palos Verdes, CA from platforms VICKERS and ROBERT GORDON SPROUL from May 21, 1992 and March 30, 1993 (NODC Accession 0067573)

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

The sediments on the shelf off Palos Verdes CA are contaminated with large amounts of DDT. Moorings were deployed on the shelf in the winter of 1993 in part to determine how often coastal ocean processes move these sediments. This program was supported by the EPA in order to gather information that would help them determine the best way to remediate the contamination on this local continental shelf.
