Abstract
  • Surface drifters were depldyed and tracked over the continental shelf and upper continental slope off central California between Point Conception and Point Sur. The drifters were deployed and tracked from aircraft by Aero-Marine Surveys, Inc. under subcontract to Raytheon Service Company as part of the Central California Coastal Circulation Study sponsored by the Minerals Management Service. The objectives of this 18-month field program were to obtain a set of observations of the ocean water mass and velocity fields and develop a detailed description of these fields and their seasonal and shorter period variations. The ultimate goal is to assess the impact of exploitation of offshore oil and gas resources of the outer continental shelf region. This data report contains maps of drifter trajectories for a total of 78 drifters deployed and tracked during four separate months (February, July and October 1984, and January 1985). Also included are time series plots of winds during the times of deployment.
