Abstract or Summary
  • The geopotential anomalies and the average meridional geostrophic flow off Newport, Oregon, were computed from the data taken during twenty-one hydrographic cruises. The annual average of geopotential anomaly was 1.31 dynamic meters with a seasonal variation of the order of 14 dynamic centimeters. Highest values of geopotential anomaly occurred in September; lowest values occurred in April. Both the highest and lowest value of geopotential anomaly occurred at 105 nautical miles offshore. The currents found by dynamic computation were weak and irregular, generally 5 cm/sec or less. The direction of the average meridional geostrophic flow varied with season. Within 105 nautical miles of the coast, flow was southward in summer, northward in winter. Beyond 105 nautical miles from the coast, flow directions reversed, that is, flow was northward in summer and southward in winter.
