Abstract:

The velocity profiles in this Atlas were obtained from historical data supplied by the National Oceanographic Data Center NODC. The profiles are derived from Nansen Cast data with the velocity computed from Wilsons equations. The format is based on a one degree month and seasonal analysis and generally covers the North Atlantic area bounded by the coordinates 20 degrees N to 60 degrees N and 30 degrees W to 90 degrees W. In order to reduce the bulkiness of the Atlas, a latitudinal division was decided upon with Volume I covering the area between 40 degrees N to 60 degrees N and Volume II the area from 20 degrees N to 40 degrees N.
