Near‐inertial motions were observed at all current meters in an array of five moorings spanning the continental margin off central Oregon during October 1977 to January 1978. All moorings were between 10 and 130 km from shore, in water depths between 100 m and 2500 m. Largest near‐inertial amplitudes (>30...
