Eastward and northward components of velocity, water temperature, and conductivity collected from moorings in Southern California Bight from 1985-10-09 to 1986-02-07 (NCEI Accession 0166874)

The CROSS experiment was the first of several experiments carried out in the Southern California Basin Study between October 1985 and July 1990. Ten current meter moorings were deployed in a line crossing the Santa Monica basin from approximately 3.5 kilometers offshore in Santa Monica Bay to 60 kilometers offshore. Data submitted is from 7 moorings (C2A, C3, C4, C5, C5A, C6, C7). Data for the remaining 3 moorings (C1, C1A, C2) was previously submitted to NODC (accession number 9800021). Current meters were a mix of Aanderaa (AA) and Vector Measuring Current Meters (VMCM) instruments. The AA meters measured speed, direction, temperature and, in some cases, conductivity with a sample interval of 20 minutes. The VMCM data (previously submitted, accession number 9800021) was sampled in 15 minute intervals. Results from this study can be found in: Hickey, B.M. (1992) Circulation over the Santa Monica-San Pedro Basin and Shelf. Progress in Oceanography, 30:37-115, doi.org/10.1016/0079-6611(92)90009-O. Data file format is plain text.
