NODC Standard Product: Texas-Louisiana Shelf Circulation and Transport Processes Study, 1992-1994

Metadata Updated: November 1, 2023

This collection includes data that was collected by Texas A&M University (TAMU) as part of the Texas-Louisiana Shelf Circulation and Transport Processes Study (LATEX A), and was included in a set of NODC Standard Product CD-ROMs. This collection includes MiniSpec directional wave data, SeaData non-directional wave data, current direction/velocity, water temperature, air temperature, salinity, hydrographic, ADCP, drifting buoy, and expendable probe data, as well as project reports.

The Louisiana-Texas Shelf Physical Oceanography Program (LATEX) was sponsored by the Minerals Management Service (MMS) of the U.S. Department of the Interior. Of its three study units, the Texas-Louisiana Shelf Circulation and Transport Processes Study (LATEX A or LATEX Shelf) was conducted by the Texas A&M University System. The LATEX A field program ran from April 1992 to December 1994. The study area encompassed the Texas-Louisiana continental shelf offshore of approximately the 10-m isobath, from the Mississippi River to the Rio Grande. The five major field components were: moored current meter measurements, drifting buoys, hydrography, acoustic Doppler current profiling (ADCP), and meteorological buoys.
