Abstract
  • This report presents observations from two programs in 1975, WISP and UP-75 to study circulation off Oregon. WISP was a study of the transition between the winter and spring regimes, and UP-75 was designed to determine whether there is a poleward undercurrent along the continental slope during the upwellinq season. During WISP, eleven current meters were moored in three arrays across the shelf at 45°N from late January to late April, and hydrographic sections were made at intervals of several weeks from late January to mid-May. All current meters successfully measured velocity and temperature; ten also measured conductivity. During UP-75, four current meters were moored in an array over the shelf, at the 100 m isobath,and six current meters were moored over the upper slope, at about the 500 m iso­bath, from late April to late July 1975; all measured velocity and tempera­ture, and four also measured conductivity. At the end of July, there was a hydrographic section across the shelf, both moorings were recovered, and the inshore mooring was replaced with three current meters which were retrieved in September. This data report presents the hourly data from the current meters, including time series of salinity and sigma-t; the hydrographic data; and low frequency time series (with periods longer than one day) of wind, adjusted sea level and the parameters measured from the current meters.
