Title: Mooring Data for the Coastal Mixing and Optics (CMO) Program from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI)
Description:
Abstract:
As part of the Coastal Mixing and Optics (CMO) Program, the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) Upper Ocean Processes Group deployed four moorings on the New England Shelf from August 1996 through June 1997. The moorings are located 80 miles southeast of Montauk, Long Island, and 60 miles south of Martha's Vineyard. The mooring array consists of a central mooring site, at approximately 40.5 N, 70.5 W, and three surrounding sites. Relative to the central at 70 m depth, the surrounding sites are 10 km inshore at 60 m depth, 10 km offshore at 80 m depth, and 25 km alongshore at 70 m depth. Each mooring site includes a surface/subsurface mooring pair instrumented for measurement of currents, temperature, and salinity. In addition, an ADCP was deployed on the inshore and offshore moorings. The central site includes a pitch-roll buoy to obtain surface wave spectra and a surface-scanning Doppler sonar to image the surface velocity field. The surface mooring at the central site was instrumented with meteorological sensors for measurement of wind speed and direction, incoming short-wave and long-wave radiation, relative humidity, air temperature, sea-surface temperature, and barometric pressure. The observations from this array will be used to identify and understand the vertical mixing processes influencing the evolution of stratification over the shelf. CTD surveys were conducted during the deployment and recovery cruises. Cross-shelf transects and along-isobath transects were made with a station separation of about 5 km.
