Bow Drill3 CAN-AM Data for Various Drilling Locations off the Canadian East Coast
Entry ID: CANEMRCCRSCAN-AM


Summary
Abstract: This data set contains CAN-AM environmental monitoring network
information for various drilling locations off the Canadian East Coast. Normal and intensive synoptic mode observations include wind, air temperature and barometric pressure, sea temperature, wave height, and rig heading and rig heave, pitch and roll for the years 1984 to 1987.
