The Naval Oceanographic Office measured current velocities in the Tongue of the Ocean TOTO during March and April 1964. Emphasis was placed on near-bottom current speeds. Geodyne Corporation current meters were immersed from 2 to 16 days in taut-wire array configurations. Data from 15 current meters, implanted within 3 meters of the ocean bottom, revealed near-bottom current speeds to be greater than generally were believed. Speeds as great as 0. 5 knot were recorded.
