Abstract or Summary
  • Direct measurements of vertical water motions were made in the Oregon coastal region during the 1972 summer upwelling season. The instruments used were the Webb-Voorhis vertical current meters which are freely drifting neutrally buoyant floats capable of sensing vertical motion. It was found that in the region studied, water tended to sink at depths of 40 to 60 meters under the influence of strong northward and southward winds but that water tended to rise during the slackening periods of a southward wind. Techniques used in processing the data, some problems encountered, and the results of four good dives are presented along with possible correlations of vertical water movements with wind, sea Level, and isopycnal movements.
