Abstract:

A study was conducted to establish the current patterns and water mass characteristics existing along the Oregon coast. Surveys previously were concerned with monthly samples from a maximum depth of 100 ft and out to 25 mi offshore from Newport, Oregon. Since December 1959, the program was expanded to include monthly oceanographic stations at 10-mi intervals from 5 to 45 mi west of Astoria and Newport with samples from a maximum depth of 200 m. This analysis presents the oceanographic data in graphic and tabular form, and a preliminary interpretation of the results is given. Author
