Experiment name: not available Principal Investigator: not available PI's affiliation: WHOI Mooring Name: WHOI 630 Mooring position: 27.862 deg N, 48.657 deg W Instrument depth: 1498 meters Seafloor depth: 4023 meters Times: starts 18 Jun 1977, ends 21 May 1978 Time increment: 60 minutes Instrument type: not available parameter min mean max sd days speed (cm/sec) 1.80 4.85 17.47 2.42 337.0 dir (deg true) 0.00 177.01 359.78 108.54 337.0 u (cm/sec) -13.75 -0.11 12.31 3.71 337.0 v (cm/sec) -17.16 0.44 14.39 3.93 337.0 temp (deg C) 4.59 4.85 5.19 0.12 337.0 Approximately 17% 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.
