Eastward and northward components of ocean current velocity and water temperature collected from moorings in the vicinity of Astoria Canyon in the North East Pacific Coast from 1978-01-14 to 1978-12-13 (NCEI Accession 0163612)

The University of Washington maintained 8 current meter moorings, AC781 through AC788 in and around Astoria Canyon. Current meters were a mix of Aanderaa (AA) and Braincon (BR) instruments. The Braincon instruments were used as backup only and no data was archived. Speed, direction and temperature were measured by the Aanderaa meters. Speed and direction were measured and rotated to true North. Data was sampled in 20 minute intervals, then edited for spurious values. Speed and direction were independently filtered with a 5 point binomial filter spanning approximately 1.5 hours then resolved into u and v components. Results from this study can be found in: Hickey, B.M. (1997) Response of a narrow submarine canyon to strong wind forcing. Journal of Physical Oceanography, 27(5): 697-726. and Hickey, B.M. (1989) Patterns and processes of shelf and slope circulation. In: Landry, M.R. and B.M.
