Eastward and northward components of ocean current and water temperature collected from moorings in North East Pacific Coast from 1981-08-18 to 1981-09-05 (NCEI Accession 0164211)

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

The University of Washington maintained 7 current meter moorings, UPI-1, UPI-1 surface (UPI-1S), UPI-2, UPI-3, UPI-3 surface (UPI-3S), UPI-4, UPI-5, from Aug. 18, 1981 through Sept. 5, 1981 off the Washington coast. Current meters were a mix of Aanderaa (AA) and Vector Measuring Current Meters (VMCM) instruments. The AA meters measured speed and direction and temperature with a sample interval of 10 minutes. Speed and direction were independently filtered with a 9 point binomial filter spanning approximately 1.5 hours then resolved into u and v components. The VMCM data was sampled in 4 minute intervals. The u, v time series data were edited for spurious values. Both the AA and VMCM edited data was filtered with a half power point of approximately 2.5 hours and in some cases interpolated to even hours to produce the hourly data. Temperature time series, when available, were edited for spurious values, and left as 10 minute samples. Results from this project can be found in: Hickey, B.M.
