Abstract:

This document presents the results of an experiment, conducted jointly by the Naval Ocean Research and Development Activity NORDA and the Naval Oceanographic Office NAVOCEANO, to measure the environmental background in the upper layers of the Sargasso Sea during late summer. The experiment focuses on physical oceanography and attendant meteorology on scales ranging from tens of meters to tens of kilometers in the horizontal, and on scales of order one meter or more over the upper several hundred meters of the ocean. The measurement platforms were the USNS KANE, a Navy P-3 aircraft two flights and the Tiros N and GOES satellites. A summary of the types of data collected is given. Author
