Abstract: Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) data were collected from 1996 to 1999 from a long-term moored array on the Northeast Peak of Georges Bank. ADCP velocity profiles were obtained with 1-m vertical resolution using a 300 kHz Workhorse ADCP unit. mounted in a downward looking configuration in an in-line frame connected to the moored buoy.
Current meter moorings were deployed in the areas of ... View entire text
