Eastward and Northward components of velocity, water temperature, conductivity, and others collected from moorings in North East Pacific Coast, Coos Bay Estuary from 1997-08-12 to 2000-08-08 (NCEI Accession 0165302)

As part of The Pacific Northwest Coastal Ecosystem Regional Study (PNCERS) the University of Washington under the direction of Dr. Barbara Hickey maintained two offshore moorings, one off Grays Harbor, WA and one off Coos Bay, OR from early 1998 through spring 2000. These moorings included an upward looking Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) providing a time series of temperature at the heads and u,v components of velocity profiles. On the Grays Harbor offshore mooring an Aanderaa Instruments current meter (AA) below the ADCP measured speed, direction and conductivity. A mooring was also maintained in the Coos Bay estuary. Instruments in the estuary included an upward looking narrow band 1200 kHz ADCP providing a time series of temperature at the heads and u,v components of velocity profiles and either an AA or a Sea-Bird Electronics 37 MicroCat recorder to measure temperature and conductivity.

Approximately five and a half months of data from an earlier deployment at the Grays Harbor offshore mooring site were also included. These data consisted of 2 AAs measuring speed, direction, temperature and conductivity at approximately 25 and 30 meters.
