Abstract:

This report gives the results of a number of drogue surveys being carried out in support of biological work being conducted at the same time. Throughout all these surveys a standardized drogue was used, consisting of a 20-foot bamboo pole, radar reflector, flags, and an inner tube float. Surplus parachutes were used as the drogue device which would sea-anchor the drogue to the current under study. Since there is no uniform pattern to any of the drogue surveys, each cruise and its data has to be presented individually. Charts of movement and tables of positions or times are presented so that the reader may extract whatever degree of detail he wishes.
