Abstract
  • As part of the Coastal Ocean Processes (CoOP) project Coastal Ocean Advances in Shelf Transport (COAST), this was the second of two cruises in 2001 to study cross-shelf transport processes in a wind-driven coastal ocean. The project includes field experiments off the Oregon coast and coordinated ocean circulation/ecosystem and atmospheric modeling. We made intensive observations in two regions: one north of Newport, Oregon, in a region of relatively simple topography and one south of Newport centered on Heceta Bank (Figure 1). A variety of instruments were used: a towed, undulating vehicle (SeaSoar) to measure temperature, salinity, microstructure (MicroSoar) and phytoplankton fluorescence; a shipboard Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) to measure water velocity; a towed, four-frequency acoustics unit (HTI) to detect large zooplankton and larval fish; a multiple net system (MOCNESS) to obtain zooplankton samples; and a surface sampler to obtain clean seawater for determination of its iron content. We worked in close coordination with the R/V Thomas G. Thompson, aboard which other COAST scientists conducted vertical profiling.
