A continuous time series of temperature, salinity, density, and current velocity data at twenty minute intervals, collected between 24 March and 09 September, 2010, from a small coastal ocean observing system 25 kilometers southwest of the mouth of Mobile Bay, Alabama (30.0902 degrees N, 88.2116 degrees W) that the Dauphin Island Sea Lab has been operating since 2004.

Purpose Hydrographic and current velocity data collected from the Dauphin Island Sea Lab (DISL)'s coastal ocean observing system were analyzed as part of a project to identify and determine the kinematic and dynamic transport processes that govern the distribution, dispersion, dilution, and fate of oil-derived substances in Alabama's coastal waters. The subset of data examined from DISL's system were collected before, during, and after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in Louisiana in April 2010.
