Dataset Overview | National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI)

Time series current meter data from buoys in the North Atlantic as part of the Deep Circulation in the Gulf of Maine Field Program from platforms GYRE and MARY LOUISE between July 25th, 1985 and August 2nd, 1987 (NCEI Accession 0053940)

A two-year field study to investigate the deep flow between the major basins in the Gulf of Maine. This deep flow of warm-salty Slope water is an important driving mechanism of the residual flow and in part controls the distribution of suspended sediments.
