Abstract
  • A summary of the observations taken from moored stations and hydrographic surveys in POLYMODE Array III Cluster C is presented. Currents and water temperatures were measured at various depths, including: 150, 225, 300, 500, 750, 1500, 2500, and 4000 meters. Hydrographic surveys were made during the deployment and recovery cruises. Currents and water temperature data series cover the period from mid May, 1977 to early May, 1978. Cluster C contained 4 moorings, centered about 16°N, 54°W. Basic statistics of the raw time series data are tabulated. Low passed (3.9 day cutoff) daily time series are used to display: water temperature data, velocity stick diagrams, progressive vector diagrams, zonal and meridional eddy heat flux, eddy kinetic energy, a pseudo eddy potential energy, empirical orthogonal modes, and auto-correlations. Hourly data (low pass cutoff at 2 hours) is used to display spectral quantities. Hydrographic data, including 1600 stations from the N0DC archives, are used to display T-S diagrams, horizontal and vertical structure of temperature, salinity, and density, Brunt-Viasala frequency versus depth, and dynamic topography.
