Abstract:

This report describes an experiment which was performed near Bermuda to obtain current speed and direction at several depths in the ocean and to telemeter this data, by radio, upon command to a shore station. Digital data from 10 current meters spaced at intervals of 10 meters to a depth of 100 meters along a buoy mooring line, was sampled every 30 minutes for approximately 100 hours. The data was received at a shore station where it was recorded on magnetic tape, reformatted and put on punched tape. Computer treatment of the data is discussed, current speed and direction values tabulated and relevant meteorological and oceanographic parameters presented. Author
