Abstract:

During late 1973 and early 1974, current and temperature measurements were made close to the sill of the Windward Passage between Cuba and Hispaniola. In the course of ATLANTIS II Cruise 78 in November 1973, a brief bathymetric survey of the sill area was carried out followed by the anchoring of two arrays of current meters and temperature recorders. Hydrographic stations were occupied in the sill region to determine the temperature, salinity, oxygen and silicate characteristics of the water column. During KNORR Cruise 37 in February and March 1974, additional bathymetric and hydrographic station observations were made and the current meters and temperature recorders were recovered. In this report, some of the basic data from the moored arrays are presented. Author
