Experiment name: not available Principal Investigator: not available PI's affiliation: WHOI Mooring Name: WHOI 624 Mooring position: 27.292 deg N, 40.758 deg W Instrument depth: 4028 meters Seafloor depth: 4364 meters Times: starts 12 Jun 1977, ends 05 Dec 1977 Time increment: 60 minutes Instrument type: not available parameter min mean max sd days speed (cm/sec) 1.80 2.70 8.03 1.22 175.6 dir (deg true) 0.00 163.52 359.82 100.85 175.6 u (cm/sec) -6.36 0.40 7.20 1.93 175.6 v (cm/sec) -6.30 -0.07 6.91 2.22 175.6 Approximately 55% of the speeds measured by this instrument were at or below the current meter's threshhold, which is 1.8 cm/sec. In this file these (unknown) speeds have been set to 1.8 cm/sec. This file is from a group of records whose speeds are noisier than usual. These records (hourly measurements from WHOI moorings 623 through 632) are from the same general area and the same time span, and appear to be from a single experiment. The noisy speeds may be due to a persistant instrument malfunction. While this is not necessarily the case, we suggest that you keep this possibility in mind if you use the data.
