Abstract:

Three deep-sea subsurface moorings, each equipped with five current meters at depths from 150m below the surface to 200m above the bottom, were deployed off Northern California from September 1984 to July 1985 as part of the OPTOMA program. The triad of moorings, centered near 38.5 deg N, 125 deg W, had mutual separations of 100 km. Velocity and temperature were recorded at hourly intervals statistics and various plots of the data time series are presented in this report.
