Eastward and northward components of ocean current and water temperature collected from moorings in North East Pacific Coast from 1973-01-05 to 1974-02-23 (NCEI Accession 0163985)

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

The University of Washington maintained moorings off the coast of Washington as part of the Continental Shelf Experiment 1973-74. Moorings were kept out for longer time periods during the winter and summer and an attempt was made to maintain moorings at both an Inshore and an Offshore site. Speed and direction were measured and rotated to true North, then resolved into u and v components. Most of the current meters were Aanderaa meters but Braincon meters were used on the Westport mooring (WP). The Aanderaa meters had temperature sensors. Data was sampled in 10 or 20 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.
