Summary
Abstract: Moored current velocity, temperature, pressure, meteorological and
tide data from a two year MMS study of DeSoto Canyon Circulation in
the northwest Gulf of Mexico. 13 moorings deployed from March 1997 to
April 1999 in water depths from 100 to 1250 m. Instrumentation
includes current meters, ADCP's and temperature sensors.
Meteorological and tide data are from public domain sources including
NDBC, NWS and NOS. The data were used to study slope eddies,
wind-forced circulation, inertial-internal waves and deep topographic
Rossby waves. The data set includes the ocean response to Hurricanes
Earle and Georges in September 1998.
