Abstract:

Summaries of current and temperature measurements from three moorings in the 1978 Joint Air-Sea Interaction Project JASIN are presented the moorings are WHOIJASIN numbers 651W1, 652W2, and 653W3. The instruments were either Vector Averaging Current Meters VACM, Scripps Institution of Oceanography Vector Measuring Currents Meters VMCM, or Neil Brown Acoustic Current Meters ACM. Displays include time series, histograms, progressive vector diagrams, scatter plots, and spectra statistics are given for the entire deployment period some 40 days and for each 5-day segment. Additional measurements include pressure and vertical temperature gradient. Wind records and other meteorological observations from one of the moorings are given, as well as partial wind records from another JASIN mooring H2. Author
