Water Velocity data from the Marine Light - Mixed Layer Experiment 1991 (MLML91)Entry ID: mlml91_Water
Abstract: The Marine Light - Mixed Layer Experiment took place in
the sub-Arctic North Atlantic ocean, approximately 275
miles south of Reykjavik, Iceland in 2822m of water.
Data is available from a mooring fielded from
April 29-September 6, 1991.
The experiment was funded by the Office Of Naval Research.
Water Velocities Data from this experiment include:
Sample Rate: 900 seconds (15 Minute)
Depth Bins: 20 bins, at 10, 30, 50, 70, 86, 102, 118, 134, 150, 166,
182, 198, 214, 230, 246, 262, 278, 294, and 310 m
Variables: velocity east and north are provided, in cm/s.
Instruments include: Vector Averaging Wind Recorder, Brancker
Temperature recorder, and Multi-Variable Moored System
