Abstract:

Summaries of wind and current measurements from moored stations gathered by magnetic tape recording current meters and wind recorders in early 1969 are presented also selected hydrostation data from the same areas. Averaged wind and current quantities are presented in computer generated output as basic statistics, spectra diagrams, progressive vector diagrams and east-north component plots. The hydrostation data are presented as temperature and salinity values plotted against pressure. The data collected in 1969 were gathered from four different sites the Mediterranean Sea, the Gulf Stream, Site L and Site D. Mooring 289 was set in the Mediterranean at 38 deg 01N, 04 deg 59.9E moorings 304 and 305 were Gulf Stream moorings at 36 deg 23.4N, 70 deg 00.2W and 36 deg 43N, 70 deg 00.3W respectively. Mooring 314 was set at Site L at 34 deg 02.7N, 70 deg 02W. The rest of the data were collected from moorings set in the vicinity of Site D, 39 deg 10N, 70 deg 00W. This report presents data from the first part of 1969 only.
